FEMA seeks comments on the draft Nationwide Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement for NFIP

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has prepared a draft nationwide programmatic environmental impact statement (NPEIS) evaluating the environmental impacts of proposed modifications to the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). The draft includes an evaluation of the potential impacts to the natural and human environment associated with the NFIP at a nationwide programmatic level, as well as an evaluation of impacts of alternative proposals to modify the NFIP. Public meetings and public outreach opportunities will be held during the comment period on the Draft NPEIS. The draft NPEIS is available online, with the option of making online comments, and the deadline for comments is June 6, 2017. During the public comment period, FEMA will host several in-person public meetings and online webinars to receive comments on the Draft NPEIS. Meeting locations and times are listed on the project website.
