FIRM has been awarded a $10,000 grant from the Community Foundation of the Florida Keys (CFFK) as part of its Vision 20/20 Grant Program.
“FIRM Keys:  Mitigation and Floodproofing Outreach” will consist of a series of workshops in conjunction with workshops held by the County Sustainability Advisory Board.  The workshops, which will be open to the public and include collaboration from government agencies and stakeholders throughout Monroe County, will provide a centralized source of information, resources, tools and expertise on mitigation methods that will empower consumers prior to next year’s re-authorization of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).

The presentation was made at FIRM’s November Board meeting.  Shown above from l to r:  Michael Larson, Chair of FIRM’s Flood Insurance Committee, FIRM Vice President Steve Russ, CFFK Board Member Rosi Ware, FIRM President Mel Montagne, and Rita Linder, Chair of CFFK’s Grants Committee.
