DRAFT FEMA POLICY: Floodplain Management Requirements for Agricultural Structures and Accessory Structures

This policy is intended to provide clarification and technical assistance to National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) State Coordinators and local floodplain administrators regarding implementation of the minimum NFIP construction requirements for agricultural structures and accessory structures, as defined in this policy, which are located within floodprone areas. This policy supersedes portions of existing guidance related to agricultural structures and accessory structures found in FEMA Technical Bulletin 1 "Openings in Foundation Walls and Walls of Enclosures" and FEMA Technical Bulletin 7 "Wet Floodproofing Requirements".
