Environmental Requirements to Apply for FEMA Funding

When a community applies for FEMA funding — such as Public Assistance, Hazard Mitigation Assistance or Preparedness Grants — potential impacts to the environment and cultural resources must be considered.

NOTE: Environmental requirements do not apply to individuals and families applying for assistance.

Find Your Flood Map

Risk Mapping, Assessment and Planning (Risk MAP) is a national FEMA program that works with states, tribes, territories and local communities to evaluate and better understand their current flood risk, as well as the actions that can be taken to mitigate and become more resilient against future risk.

Floodplain Management Training Series

FEMA Region 2's Floodplain Management Training Series provides brief training videos on key topics within the National Flood Insurance Policy (NFIP) program. You will learn the history and basics of NFIP, how structural damage is determined, how flood mapping is determined, learn NFIP requirements for development in a floodway and learn about the risks associated with basements.

Guides To Expanding Mitigation

The Guides To Expanding Mitigation are a series designed to highlight innovative and emerging partnerships for mitigation, for example making connections between mitigation and wildlife, electric power, community groups, and others.

Individual and Community Preparedness Resources

The Region II Individual and Community Preparedness program prepares communities for disasters through info-sharing and training — inspiring people to take action to foster preparedness and build resilience.

Social Reinsertion During the Pandemic

Faced with the challenge of resuming ordinary social practices, while there is still a risk of contagion, many people may experience intense fear of leaving their homes. Learn about measures to reduce fear without abandoning proper precautions. 

"What Would You Do" Scenarios

A key element to successfully responding to and recovering from a major disaster is the overall preparedness of individual citizens, families and the community. With that in mind, we invite you to participate in a series of ‘What would you do?’ scenarios to assess your level of preparedness.

These tabletop activities are intended to be low-stress conversation starters for the whole community. Each scenario includes discussion questions for the activity, a facilitator guide and some helpful links to enhance individual and community preparedness.

Last week, the Government of the Virgin Islands and federal partners participated in a series of response and initial recovery exercises as well as functional drills to bolster preparedness efforts before Atlantic hurricane season. Participants established a unified command led by the territory and supported with federal resources from Emergency Operations Centers on St. Croix, St. Thomas and St. John and FEMA facilities while working together across the territory. The exercises were driven by a scenario of a Category 3 hurricane that had impacted the U.S. Virgin Islands overnight with conditions allowing for initial assessments and coordination.
