At this year's LFMA Conference, CHART facilitated a panel of Community Rating System Users Groups in Southeast Louisiana. Community Rating System Users Groups serve as a support and educational resource for the local communities who participate in the CRS. The panel, composed of members of the Capital Region Area Floodplain Taskforce (CRAFT), the Flood Loss Outreach and Awareness Taskforce (FLOAT) and Jefferson United Mitigation Professionals (JUMP), discussed the benefits of joining a CRS Users Group, and the achievements of each group.The Users Groups meet monthly, and work together on all aspects of the CRS. The group members share best practices and tips on how to successfully manage the floodplain in their communities, and collaborate on projects and reports, including developing Programs for Public Information and Flood Response Procedures. Through meetings and collaboration, the members of each group are able to maintain and improve their status in the CRS.
