  • Notice to Congress: Monthly Updates on Flood Mapping for 2015

    Go to Resource

    Through its Risk MAP program, FEMA consistently releases new flood maps and data, giving communities across America access to helpful, authoritative data that they can use to make decisions about flood risk. The Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012 (Biggert-Waters) as amended with the Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act of 2014, directs FEMA to notify Members of Congress when constituents in their District are and will be affected by a flood mapping update. Beginning in June 2014 and recurring each month in accordance with these requirements, FEMA produces a summary document to serve as notification to Congress and provide details of mapping milestones reached in the previous month and an estimated schedule of certain mapping activities anticipated in the next three months. This Library Container contains these monthly notices to Congress for the year 2015.
