The National Flood Insurance Act of 1968 prohibits the Director from providing flood insurance in a community unless that community adopts and enforces floodplain management measures that meet or exceed minimum criteria in 44 CFR Part 60.3.
These floodplain management measures can take the form of floodplain management ordinances, building codes, or zoning provisions.
The Act also directs FEMA to work closely with and provide any necessary technical assistance to States and communities participating in the NFIP.
CAP-SSSE, through its State partnering agreement, is designed to make State personnel available to assist and supplement FEMA Regions in providing technical assistance to NFIP communities and in monitoring, evaluating, and pursuing corrective actions taken by communities in the performance of local floodplain management responsibilities.
Under CFR 60.25, Governors have exercised their prerogative of designating a "State Coordinating Agency" that is best able to carry out the flood loss reduction activities of the NFIP.
State officials can be particularly effective in delivering these services to communities because of their knowledge and familiarity with State governing authorities and how these interrelate with local floodplain management ordinances, as well as their knowledge of related State programs.
CAP-SSSE allocations are based on indicators of workload and risk.
Generally, the activities negotiated in the CAP-SSSE agreement reflect the Regions priorities for those activities that it needs done and the capabilities of a particular State.
FEMA's Regional Offices will contact eligible States to negotiate a mutually acceptable grant agreement.
Funding is made available when the grant agreement is negotiated and agreed upon.
Continued participation in the CAP-SSSE is dependent upon completing activities described in the grant agreement.
The CAP-SSSE is designed to utilize the floodplain management capabilities of individual States in a cost effective cooperative agreement with FEMA.
A State's participation in the SSSE is voluntary and is contingent upon need and skill level capability. Full Opportunity Web Address:https://www.grants.govContact: Agency Email Description:
