ACTION: Notice and request for comments. AGENCY: The Federal Emergency Management Agency, as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, invites the general public and other Federal agencies to take this opportunity to comment on a proposed new information collection. In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, this notice seeks comments concerning a survey of property owners in communities with high densities of disaster recipients to identify flood insurance purchasing patterns and develop strategies to improve overall compliance with flood insurance regulations. SUMMARY: The 1994 National Flood Insurance Act requires flood victims in Federally declared SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00065 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 disaster areas to purchase flood insurance as a condition of Federal financial assistance if their property is located in a Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA). This flood insurance coverage must be maintained for the life of a property loan or if an Individual and Household Program (IHP) grant is received, funds to cover the insurance for three years are deducted from the grant. Following the three-year, grant recipients must maintain their insurance coverage. If these victims do not comply with these requirements, they will not be eligible for future Federal disaster assistance. Flood insurance compliance among victims of federally declared flood events appears to be problematic. FEMA post-disaster records indicate that a significant number of flood-damaged structures, located both in and outside SFHAs, have either (a) never had flood insurance, or (b) purchased flood insurance but did not maintain the policies.

AGENCY: Federal Emergency Management Agency, Department of Homeland 
Security.

ACTION: Notice and request for comments.

SUMMARY: The Federal Emergency Management Agency, as part of its 
continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, invites 
the general public and other Federal agencies to take this opportunity 
to comment on a proposed new information collection. In accordance with 
the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, this notice seeks comments 
concerning a survey of property owners in communities with high 
densities of disaster recipients to identify flood insurance purchasing 
patterns and develop strategies to improve overall compliance with 
flood insurance regulations.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The 1994 National Flood Insurance Act 
requires flood victims in Federally declared disaster areas to purchase 
flood insurance as a condition of Federal financial assistance if their 
property is located in a Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA). This flood 
insurance coverage must be maintained for the life of a property loan 
or if an Individual and Household Program (IHP) grant is received, 
funds to cover the insurance for three years are deducted from the 
grant. Following the three-year, grant recipients must maintain their 
insurance coverage. If these victims do not comply with these 
requirements, they will not be eligible for future Federal disaster 
assistance. Flood insurance compliance among victims of federally 
declared flood events appears to be problematic. FEMA post-disaster 
records indicate that a significant number of flood-damaged structures, 
located both in and outside SFHAs, have either (a) never had flood 
insurance, or (b) purchased flood insurance but did not maintain the 
policies.
