- Go to ResourceThis report attempts to more precisely quantify private insurers’ role in underwriting flood insurance on residential structures and condominium units, focusing on policies placed by lenders to comply with the NFIP’s mandatory purchase requirement (MPR). This information will help FEMA staff more fully understand and quantify the percentage of homes financially protected by flood insurance. This report also analyzes how lender-placed flood insurance policies compare with those offered by the NFIP and examines the structure and buyer perceptions of the private market. This information will help FEMA staff assess the extent to which such private policies meet the MPR’s insurance standards and help Congress, FEMA, and other stakeholders develop and evaluate proposals to improve the public and private mechanisms in place to provide insurance against flood risk.
- Go to ResourceThe purpose of this report is to estimate the flood return probability for the July-August 2006 floods within eight watersheds in the El Paso, Texas area. The study is part of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Task Order J030 to develop countywide flood recovery data in response to the August 15, 2006, El Paso County Disaster Declaration FEMA-1658-DR. The basic approach used in this analysis was to identify and collect historic and 2006 flood event data for the watershed area, perform frequency analyses using historic rain data and historic flows, identify event extremes within the study area, and compare event extremes to the results of frequency analyses to estimate storm return probabilities. This report summarizes the methodology used to develop flood return probability for the recent storms and the results of the flood frequency determination. These studies can enable decision-makers to improve disaster preparedness and limit future disaster impact.
- Go to ResourceThe National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) was established with the passage of the National Flood Insurance Act of 1968. The NFIP is a Federal program enabling property owners in participating communities to purchase flood insurance as protection against flood losses, while requiring State and local governments to enforce floodplain management ordinances that reduce future flood damages. Over 20,300 communities participate in the NFIP.
- Go to ResourceThe Multi-Year Flood Hazard Identification Plan (MHIP) details FEMA’s plan for prioritizing and delivering modernized flood maps for areas of the United States with the greatest flood risk. The MHIP provides: detailed tables and graphs of projected flood map production sequencing and projected funding allocations; a summary of stakeholder input, including information provided through business plans developed by FEMA Regional Offices and State mapping partners; and a summary of FEMA’s progress in meeting Key Performance Indicators for the Flood Map Modernization program.
- Go to ResourceThe National Flood Insurance Program’s (NFIP) Community Rating System (CRS) was implemented in 1990 as a voluntary program for recognizing and encouraging community floodplain management activities exceeding the NFIP’s minimum standards. Any community that is in full compliance with the NFIP’s minimum floodplain management requirements may apply to join CRS.
