In 1968 the U.S. Congress established the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) making flood insurance available to residents of communities that adopt and enforce floodplain management ordinances. The NFIP Program is a part of The Federal Emergency Management Agency.
The NFIP - CIS (Community Information System) is an official record of the National Flood Insurance information.
The CIS, as the database system is commonly called, provides information about floodplain management, mapping and insurance for the NFIP communities. The CIS includes demographic, engineering, insurance and community specific information for jurisdictions in the United States that are identified as floodprone.
A new version of software for CIS users has been released. More information is available at the CIS 3.1 Release page.
