A Unified National Program for Floodplain Management
The Unified National Program responds to Section 1302(c) of the National Flood Insurance Act of 1968 (P.L. 90-448) and updates the 1979 and 1986 reports (FEMA 100) of the same title. This document (FEMA 248) was prepared by the Federal Interagency Floodplain Management Task Force and concurred in by the 10 member agencies. In contrast to prior reports, which emphasized voluntary coordination of authorities, this Unified National Program document focuses on achieving national floodplain management goals that are both measurable and specific.
