Moving buildings away from shorelines can greatly reduce risks, not only to that structure, but to a community's infrastructure and to first responders. Large, historic buildings have been successfully protected this way. For more information, see an engineer experienced with the structure relocation. For potential funding sources, see the funding page.
The StormSmart Coasts program will be working to develop guidance and promote funding sources for relocating at-risk structures in the coastal floodplain.
