|I think our maps need to be updated. Who should I contact to learn more about updating our set of maps?|
|Maintaining the most current information on the Flood Insurance Rate Maps is a challenge as the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) currently has over 19,000 participating communities. One of the best ways to facilitate new mapping for your community is to consider becoming a Cooperating Technical Partner (CTP) with FEMA.|
The CTP initiative is an innovative program to create partnerships between FEMA and participating NFIP communities, regional agencies, and State agencies that have the interest and capability to become more active participants in the FEMA Flood Hazard Mapping Program.
FEMA is seeking qualified partners to collaborate in maintaining up-to-date flood maps and other flood hazard information. For more information about this initiative, please visit http://www.fema.gov/fhm/ctp_main.shtm for news and contact information.
Even if your community cannot participate in the CTP program, you may still contact the FEMA Regional Office to discuss the possibility of updating your maps. Please contact the appropriate regional office to discuss having your mapping needs assessed. Contact information for the Regional Offices can be found at http://www.fema.gov/regions/.
