Federal Interagency Floodplain Management Task Force
The Federal Interagency Floodplain Management Task Force (FIFM-TF) was authorized and established by Congress in 1975. The purpose of the Task Force is to carry out the responsibility of the President to prepare for the Congress proposals necessary for a Unified National Program for Floodplain Management.
ASFPM is providing suggestions to the FIFM-TF for consideration and action. Our overarching priority recommendations are:
Make the Task Force a permanent group that meets regularly and develops a long range strategy and yearly work plans;
Update the Unified National Program for Floodplain Management;
Update the 1992 National Assessment of Floodplain Management in the U.S.;
