  • Coastal Tutorial Featuring CHAMP

    The Coastal Hazard Analysis Modeling Program (CHAMP) is a software program designed to enable the user to perform storm-induced erosion treatments, wave height analyses, and wave runup analyses associated with coastal flood hazard assessments. The tutorial will demonstrate the many functions of the program including entering, visualizing, tabulating and charting data, and performing coastal engineering analyses within a user-friendly environment.
  • Programmatic Environmental Assessment for Mississippi Alternative Housing Pilot Program

    This PEA evaluates the long-term and permanent housing actions proposed by the State of Mississippi (State) and FEMA under the AHPP for Mississippi residents displaced as a result of Hurricane Katrina. This PEA also provides the public and decision-makers with the information required to understand and evaluate the potential environmental consequences of these actions. FEMA will use this PEA to determine the level of environmental analysis and documentation required under NEPA for any proposed AHPP housing action in Mississippi, given the available site-specific information. If the alternatives, levels of analysis, and site-specific information of an action proposed for FEMA funding are fully and accurately described in this PEA, then no further documentation will be required to comply with NEPA.
  • Environmental Assessment for Fire Station, LaBelle-Fannett Volunteer Fire Department, LaBelle, Texas

    LaBelle-Fannett’s VFD provides fire and rescue emergency response services to a population of approximately 7,000 people in an area encompassing approximately 230 square miles in central Jefferson County. As a direct result of flooding from Hurricane Ike, the LaBelle-Fannett’s VFD station was severely damaged beyond repair. The purpose of the proposed action is to relocate and construct a new fire station so that the LaBelle-Fannett VFD can return to its pre-disaster function and continue to provide effective emergency response services. The previous fire station was located in the 100 year floodplain. The proposed new location would be located in an area outside of the base floodplain, have greater access to major streets and highways, and would allow the VFD to use the station for an emergency shelter during the next flooding event.

  • Congressional Letters Regarding FEMA Levee Analysis Approach

    FEMA has been engaged in a comprehensive review of its National Flood Insurance Program to identify reforms that will enable us to better address flood risks. A part of that review has included working with members of Congress and other stakeholders regarding FEMA's approach to mapping flood risk with respect to levees. As a result, FEMA has developed a revised set of procedures that account for several typical non-accredited levee scenarios. These scenarios characterize actual conditions that a community may encounter when addressing non-accredited levees or levee systems.
