REACH Webinar: Mapper and Database Training Workshop

Register for the May 26, 2022 REACH webinar to use the new flood mapper tool, conduct targeted analysis, and download data to use in your community vulnerability assessments.

The REACH team will release the new regional housing report which defines risks to affordable housing in each Tampa Bay Regional Resilience Coalition county.

The workshop will also provide training and tips on using the UF Coastal Flood Risk web mapping tool and database to easily and quickly identify buildings and populations potentially impacted by hurricanes and future sea level rise.

These important new resources include publicly assisted and unassisted multifamily and single family housing under $200,000, and support the ability to define social factors from the CDC Social Vulnerability Index. The resources encompass Citrus, Hernando, Hillsborough, Pasco, Pinellas, Manatee and Sarasota Counties.
