ASFPM Urges Congress to Restore FEMA's Flood Mapping Budget
Wednesday, September 21, 2011

ASFPM sent letters to Congress today urging them to restore FEMA's Flood Mapping Budget. If timely and accurate flood mapping is not done, it is impossible to determine the flood risk so that property owners can protect their investment and safety. The FEMA Flood Mapping Program has led, and continues to lead, our national effort in developing basic flood risk data that can be used by all to take actions and reduce flood damages.

You can view ASFPM's letters on our website at:
                                                                Senate Letter
                                                                House Letter
NEXT STEPS:
If you are able, please take a moment to contact your
Congressional delegates and urge them to restore FEMA's Flood Mapping Budget as soon as possible.

The best way to communicate with Congressional offices is to submit letters electronically or by fax, since regular mail still goes through a lengthy security process. Please click on the following link to quickly locate your congressional delegates in the Senate and the House.
