The Maine CZM Program supports community participation in the CRS through the ME Flood Resilience Checklist. This tool helps communities assess their vulnerability to current and future flood hazards, evaluate preparedness for flood events, and gauge the resilience of their social, natural, and physical systems. The tool includes a manual that lists activities that can earn CRS credits, and suggestions on facilitating a discussion process. Maine CZM also conducts education and outreach efforts to increase awareness of CRS and provides guidance materials to simplify and support the application process. The Maine CZM Program has worked with the Maine Silver Jackets team in developing High Water Mark (HWM) signs. Communities that received the HWM signs were able to receive CRS credits for the installation.
