ASFPM will develop and deliver a project following the successful example of guidance refinement and training delivery used for the Community Rating System Green Guide. The project outcome will be enhanced community capacity to understand and mitigate NFIP repetitive loss (RL) properties. The project will include a “Multiple Loss Properties Mitigation Engagement Seminar and Training Series” that will include information exchange about the following key themes: explanation of the role of RL properties in the NFIP; understanding CRS best practices that address RL properties; use of community-based substantial damage compliance as a RL property mitigation action; RL property owner engagement and education strategies; the role of state hazard mitigation officers; and mitigation financing. It is expected the initial focus of the Seminar Series will be in coastal areas.
