10:45 AM - 12:00 PM - Concurrent Session
Title: Designing Successful Buyout Programs
Description: Buyout programs are a cost effective way to move residents and business owners out of flood’s way reducing the costs associated with repeated rebuilding after flooding events. Buyout programs also make communities more attractive to continued investment, and when designed and planned properly help vulnerable populations, that otherwise could not relocate, move to lower risk areas and better quality housing. During this interactive session, participants will identify common challenges, brainstorm creative ways to overcome those challenges, and share best practices to design an impactful buyout program.
