The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) issued a Request for Information to receive the public's input.


Background Information

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is issuing a Request for Information to receive the public's input on two topics:

  1. The public's input on revising the National Flood Insurance Program's (NFIP) floodplain management standards for land management and use regulations to better align with the current understanding of flood risk and flood risk reduction approaches. Specifically, FEMA is seeking input from the public on the floodplain management standards that communities should adopt to result in safer, stronger, and more resilient communities.

  2. Input on how the NFIP can better promote the protection of and minimize any adverse impact to threatened and endangered species, and their habitats.

Tips on commenting:

  • Tell your story: write a brief paragraph or two with your personal story to include in your comments. 

  • Choose a few of the key topic areas from the drafted comment letter document and answer them using the examples provided. Try to put it in your own words. Then, be sure to delete the other topic questions.

  • Add photos to your comments if you have them. 

  • Visit the FEMA Public Comment portal to submit your comments.

  • Forward to your friends, family, and neighbors, especially people you know have been impacted by flooding, and ask them to do the same.
