Coastal Flood Hazard Outreach

 

The CRC has partnered with FEMA and the NJDEP Bureau of Dam Safety to become an Academic Cooperating Technical Partner (CTP).  As a CTP the CRC will provide technical support, web-based outreach products, and meeting facilitation to increase public awareness of flood risks within New Jersey’s coastal counties.  For more information visit www.region2coastal.com/.

 
 
 

 

Under its Risk MAP Program, FEMA is providing quality flood hazard information to help communities plan for and reduce the risk from flooding. As part of that effort, the FEMA Region II office has initiated a coastal flood study to update the information shown on the Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) for 14 coastal New Jersey counties and New York City. The FIRM shows each community's flood hazards and is a requirement for participation in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). The FIRM is used to determine who must buy flood insurance and where floodplain development regulations apply.
