FP1.5: Increase staff capacity for planning, implementation, and enforcement related to floodplains
Summarize accomplishments from:
Regional Priority Approach Description
Approach - Increase human and technical capacity of staff for planning, implementation, and enforcement
Desired Outcome - Staff have the technical expertise, time, support, and tools to develop and implement restoration and protection measures in floodplains.
Policy Needs - N/A
- Increase staffing or human capital with adequate training and access to data, research, etc.
- Identify, synchronize, and grow funding mechanisms to support local planning.
- Develop a centralized application process for all floodplain funding sources with regionally supported metrics, goals, and application requirements.
- If proposing staff technical training, describe how the training will be leveraged to increase jurisdictional capacity.
- If working on funding mechanisms, consider coordinating with partners conducting ongoing work (such as Floodplains by Design, NOAA's Coordinated Investment, local governments, tribal governments).
Local Context - Local context provides additional specificity on how a Regional Priority approach should be implemented in each local area; examples include sequencing, partners to consider, and critical areas. Local context for this Regional Priority approach is available here.
