Financing & Incentivizing Floodplain Buyouts: A Guide

Our Financing & Incentives guide is based on a review of what communities across the country are doing to make floodplain acquisitions a reality. We provide an overview of the sources and types of funds that exist and can be used to contribute to acquisition projects. Key insights provide a concise summary of how to approach this critical component of a successful buyout project.
