Elimination of PDM and Further Cuts to Flood Mapping  

in FEMA FY13 Budget

 

The President's proposed FY2013 budget eliminates the Federal Emergency Management Agency's (FEMA's) Pre-Disaster Mitigation (PDM) Grant Program and makes additional cuts to the flood mapping program from last year.  ASFPM provided Outside Witness Testimony to the Subcommittee on Homeland Security, House Committee on Appropriations regarding the FY13 Budget. Our Testimony expressed deep concern about eliminating PDM and the additional mapping cuts in FY13, commented on the new proposed National Preparedness Grant Program (NPGP), and supported streamlining and funding increases to flood mitigation grant programs under the NFIP. ASFPM's Outside Witness Testimony can be viewed on the ASFPM website.  Additionally, ASFPM's Statement on the Draft FY13 Budget can also be viewed on the ASFPM website.
