Description:

FEMA administers the National Flood Insurance Program
(NFIP) and, under the authority of section 1360 of the National Flood
Insurance Act of 1968 (42 U.S.C. 4101) establishes and updates flood-
risk zone data in floodplain areas. In the identification of floodprone
areas, we may consult with, receive information from and enter into
agreements or other arrangements with the head of any State, regional,
or local agency in order to identify these floodprone areas.
We are implementing the Cooperating Technical Partners (CTP)
program as part of our Flood Map Modernization Program. The plan
document for our Map Modernization Program and progress reports
concerning the Program are available at http://www.fema.gov/fhm/dl_mpmod.shtm.
The program formally recognizes and encourages the
contributions that our Flood Hazard Mapping Partners (State agencies,
regional agencies, tribal governments, and communities) make in
developing timely and accurate flood hazard information. We strongly
encourage partner contributions to flood hazard data development, which
are a key part of the program.
Establishing formal partnerships with State, regional, and local
organizations to produce NFIP maps is beneficial for the following
reasons:
The data used for local permitting and planning will also
be the basis for the NFIP map, facilitating more efficient floodplain
management;
The CTP program provides the opportunity to interject a
tailored, local focus into a national program; thus, where unique
conditions may exist, we can take needed special approaches to flood
hazard identification; and
The partnership mechanism provides the opportunity to pool
resources and extend the productivity of limited public funds.
Under this program, the partners will enter into a general overall
agreement that recognizes the fundamental importance of flood hazard
identification, flood insurance, and floodplain management. Then,
through a collaborative process, the partners will identify the
specific flood hazard mapping activities to be undertaken. If this
process results in CTP activities that we will support with FEMA funds,
the partners will enter into a Cooperative Agreement and define the
roles and responsibilities for each Flood Map Project through
agreements termed Mapping Activity Statements. The intent of any
Cooperative Agreement and accompanying funds that we award is to
supplement and not to supplant ongoing mapping efforts by the
community, regional agency, or State agency. Further, we envision that
this collaborative process will maximize the extent, accuracy, and
utility of flood studies to best meet local and Federal needs, while
minimizing costs for all parties.
