- The subapplicant appealed the FEMA Region IV denial of funding for elevation of a structure located within the regulatory floodway.
- Reason for Denial
- The cost of the elevation was greater than the fair market value (FMV) of the structure, and therefore would be considered a substantial improvement.
- 44 CFR 9.11(d)(1) prohibits FEMA from funding "new construction or substantial improvement in a floodway".
