The Zone A Manual: Managing Floodplain Development in Approximate Zone A Areas

Main Content

This page provides helpful links to connect users to the Zone A Manual for determining Base Flood Elevations in Special Flood Hazard Areas and any complementary user guides, resources and appendices.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) developed the Zone A Manual, also referred to as FEMA 265, to provide engineering guidelines for determining Base Flood Elevations in Special Flood Hazard Areas that were studied by approximate methods only and are labeled Zone A on the effective National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) map. The Quick-2 User's Guide is also included in the appendices of this manual.

The Zone A Manual and an array of other useful FEMA, NFIP and Flood Map Modernization Resources (Map Mod) are now located in the FEMA Library.
