DCR also conducts workshops on how to read and use flood maps, develop floodplain management strategies, comply with the NFIP, evaluate flood-proofing strategies and interpret ordinances. Staff members also review local ordinances for compliance with the NFIP standards.
Assistance is also provided to those communities in the NFIP seeking to lower flood insurance premiums through the Community Rating System (CRS).
