Risk Mapping, Assessment, and Planning (Risk MAP) Fiscal Year 2009 Flood Mapping Production Plan
FEMA is beginning to transition from Flood Map Modernization to Risk Mapping, Assessment, and Planning (Risk MAP) in fiscal year (FY) 2009. The vision for Risk MAP is to collaborate with State, local, and Tribal entities to deliver quality data that increases public awareness of flood risks. The dynamic nature of floodplains requires updated analysis of flood hazards on a periodic basis. The goals of the FEMA Risk MAP Multi-Year Plan (Fiscal Years 2010-2014), dated March 16, 2009, include addressing gaps in flood hazard data, which forms the foundation for flood risk assessment and floodplain management. The Risk MAP FY09 Flood Mapping Production Plan provides the strategy for selection of FY09 Risk MAP flood map update projects and the planned schedule for their completion.
