The purpose of this page is to define the Biennial report, and it's role in floodplain management.
Every two years, communities participating in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) must complete and submit a Biennial Report describing the community''s progress in the previous two years in implementing floodplain management measures and on its needs for re-mapping and technical assistance.
FEMA sends the Biennial Report form to local community officials. Submission of this report is required as part of a community''s participation in the NFIP.
