Program for Public Information (PPI)

A Program for Public Information (PPI) is an ongoing effort to prepare, implement, and monitor a range

of public information activities. The objective of CRS credit for a PPI is to provide additional credit for

information programs that are designed to meet local needs and that are monitored, evaluated, and

revised to improve their effectiveness. The Village has developed this PPI in accordance with the CRS

credit criteria found within Activity 330.


The PPI planning process provides the opportunity for the Village to consider creative alternatives for

disseminating messages about the flood hazard to the community and to leverage other stakeholders

through their messaging and materials. The Village’s aim is to build on existing outreach efforts,

stakeholder partnerships, and advances in technology and web-based outreach in order to support a

diverse outreach program and deliver targeted messages to high priority areas and audiences.
