Carl Vinson Institute of Government Workshop (5.5 CM and 1.5 law credits)
August 14, 2014 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Planners can obtain APA credits for attending a one-day workshop hosted by UGA’s Carl Vinson Institute of Government in Savannah, GA on Aug. 28, 2014. Homeowners are facing rising flood insurance rates. Local governments can create insurance discounts for their communities by participating in the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Community Rating System (CRS) program and earn CRS credits for flood control measures and community outreach.
This workshop will help planners and local governments learn how to successfully earn CRS credits for their community. The workshop will focus on three key areas: open space, regulatory standards, and voluntary property acquisition programs.
