Our Vision and Mission
The Cooperating Technical Partners (CTP) Program’s mission is to strengthen the effectiveness of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) and support FEMA’s mitigation objectives. CTP leverages partnerships to deliver high-quality hazard identification and risk assessment products, provide outreach support and empower communities to take action to reduce risk based on informed, multi hazard-based data and resources. This is in support of FEMA’s Risk Mapping, Assessment and Planning (Risk MAP) Program.
FEMA leverages CTP partnerships in the delivery of high-quality mapping products, risk assessment tools, and planning and outreach support. This enables communities to take action to reduce risk based on informed multi hazard-based data and resources.
