NFIP: 2017 Final Nationwide Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), under the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), prepared this Nationwide Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (NPEIS) to evaluate proposed modifications to the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). This NPEIS includes an evaluation of the potential impacts to the natural and human environment associated with the NFIP at a programmatic level, as well as an evaluation of impacts of alternative proposals to modify the NFIP. Additionally, this NPEIS identifies opportunities to eliminate, reduce, or mitigate any potential direct or indirect environmental impacts that may be associated with implementation of the modifications to the NFIP included in the alternatives. FEMA's Federal Insurance and Mitigation Administration (FIMA) conducted this analysis under the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) (42 United States Code [U.S.C.] § 4321 et seq.).
