Central Vermont Flood Recovery Symposium - Montpelier

The Vermont Flood Recovery office in partnership with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) will be presenting a series of Flood Recovery Symposiums June 4, at Stratton Mountain, June 5 at Vermont State University Johnson Campus, and June 6 at the Vermont State House. Each event will provide similar content so if you can’t make the one in your region, you can always RSVP for one on another day.

Representatives from federal agencies, state programs and other supporting organizations will be on hand to present a range of opportunities to support flood recovery for your municipality, business, or nonprofit organization. Most importantly, these representatives will be available to speak with you about your situation, offer tips on how to navigate the system, and combine resources across agencies to help get your projects done.

Morning sessions will focus on municipal recovery and afternoon sessions will be more business-centric, but all the resource providers will be tabling throughout the day.

Vermont Emergency Management (VEM) and FEMA will also be on-hand to promote and discuss the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program, including best practices for elevations and buy-outs. This will be a high-level overview of current efforts and opportunities, with progress updates and information about how to dive deeper with VEM support.

A workshop geared toward non-profit organizations will happen from 3:30 to 4:30 each day. This session will provide a high-level overview of federal assistance that may be available to 501c3’s and those that they may serve immediately following disasters. In addition to the resilience information presented earlier in the afternoon, this session will help agencies to be better prepared for the next disaster event.
