NOAA Coastal County Snapshots

From NOAA's Office for Coastal Management, this website provides the capability to view flood exposure by county for U. S ocean and Great Lakes coasts. Snapshots detail a county's demographic, infrastructure and environment within the flood zone. The Coastal County Snapshots provide “snapshots” or short reports on the topics of a county’s: Flood Exposure, Ocean Jobs or Wetland Benefits. The snapshots offer county-level facts, and easy-to-understand charts and graphs that describe complex coastal data.

Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality program

The Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) program, jointly administered by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA), allocates federal funds for infrastructure projects that reduce congestion and improve air quality. CMAQ funding may be used for transportation projects that reduce emissions in areas that are not in compliance with federal air quality standards or areas that formerly were not in compliance, but are now meeting those standards.
