FEMA Community Assistance Program - State Support Services Element
The Federal Emergency Management Agency's (FEMA's) Community Assistance Program - State Support Services Element (CAP-SSSE) provides, through a State grant mechanism, a means to ensure that communities participating in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) are achieving flood loss reduction goals of the NFIP. CAP-SSSE funds are to be used by States to provide technical assistance to NFIP communities, to evaluate community implementation/ performance of NFIP floodplain management activities, and to build State and community floodplain management expertise and capacity.
CAP-SSSE funds are used for activities that support the NFIP. Such activities include the fostering of effective floodplain management programs in participating communities and assisting non-participating communities in enrolling in the NFIP.
CAP-SSSE funds cannot be used for conducting floodplain studies or developing floodplain maps. Further, if a State does not have the necessary expertise and capability to conduct CAP-SSSE activities, the Region and State must develop a remedial plan. If the necessary expertise and capability does not develop in accordance with the remedial plan, the following year's CAP-SSSE funding may be reduced or withheld.
