What is it?
Through Flood Map Modernization, FEMA will provide reliable flood hazard data and maps for the United States to support the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). The Multi-Year Flood Hazard Identification Plan (MHIP) details FEMA’s plan for providing flood hazard data and maps for areas with the greatest flood risk.
FEMA is committed to a collaborative planning process that results in high-quality and timely products. By planning flood hazard mapping projects over several years, FEMA provides a venue for tracking progress as flood hazard information is updated nationwide. Updates to the MHIP keep stakeholders informed of FEMA’s progress in Flood Map Modernization and continue to serve as a mechanism for feedback.
