Environmental Planning and Historic Preservation

The integrity of our natural and historic landscape is important to us all, and steps taken to strengthen or rebuild communities can have long-term environmental and cultural impacts. To ensure proper stewardship of historic properties and the environment, there are more than 30 federal regulations, directives, and legal mandates — in addition to a number of state laws and codes — in place to protect these resources. 

FEMA’s EHP experts provide specialized guidance and practical long-term planning assistance to communities across the county to ensure that proposed projects align with environmental planning and preservation requirements.
