The Role of Buyouts in Flood Resilience

By Antioch University New England     3/21/19   

Buying and demolishing flood damaged homes is often the best option for the owners, the town, the waterway, and public safety. When FEMA funds can be matched with HUD funds, this can take place with very little cost to towns and get owners 100% of their pre-flood value. However, like any program with two sources of federal funds and some state and local involvement, there can be many obstacles along the way. Come and learn from the duo that made many of the buyouts happen in Vermont post-Tropical Storm Irene.  This presentation will dive from the high-level rationale for such a program to the ground level of actually getting it done 150 times. If your community is next to the ocean or along a river, you should have a handle on how to use funds to buy out properties, thus permanently avoiding future repeated flood damage.
