FEMA Risk Mapping, Assessment and Planning (Risk MAP)

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Risk MAP provides high quality flood maps and information, tools to better assess the risk from flooding and planning and outreach support to communities to help them take action to reduce flood risk. Each Risk MAP flood risk project is tailored to the needs of each community and may involve different products and services. 

For all projects, a strong emphasis is placed on community engagement and partnerships to ensure a whole community approach to reducing flood risk and building more resilient and sustainable communities.

Risk MAP focuses on products and services beyond the traditional Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) and works with officials to help put flood risk data and assessment tools to use, effectively communicating risk to citizens and enabling communities to enhance their mitigation plans and actions. 

FEMA produces a monthly Notice to Congress update of flood mapping project milestones and estimated schedules as required by recent legislative changes to the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). Previous monthly Notices to Congress on flood mapping are available.
