When the Trump Administration announced its "skinny" budget March 16, flood risk professionals learned that all funding for flood mapping and a substantial amount of pre-disaster mitigation grant funding were being cut. ASFPM did urge our membership to contact their members of Congress and explain why they needed to protect these programs.
A smaller group got together and developed this two-sided placemat that explains how all communities and all taxpayers benefit from the mapping program not just NFIP policyholders. This graphic is a great tool for anyone reaching out to their members of Congress, whether by email or in person on The Hill. The graphic was created by ASFPM and our partners, and everyone is welcome to use it. Here is the link if you'd like to share it electronically, or print it out.
