On October 31, 2007, FEMA published an Interim Rule in the Federal Register that ensures the Flood Mitigation Assistance (FMA) program planning requirements are consistent with the mitigation planning regulations cited in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) at Title 44, Chapter 1, Part 201 (44 CFR Part 201). This Interim Rule established that local communities can comply with one set of mitigation planning requirements to be eligible to apply for all FEMA mitigation project grant funding, including the FMA and Severe Repetitive Loss programs. This Interim Rule also created a new type of hazard mitigation plan specifically for Indian Tribal governments.
