This was in response to the escalating damage caused by flooding and the unavailability of flood insurance from commercial insurance companies. As part of this effort, FEMA mapped the 1percent annual chance floodplain in communities. However, due to scale limitations, individual structures that may be above the base flood cannot always be shown as being out of the 1percent annual chance floodplain. FEMA will issue a Letter of Map Amendment (LOMA) to waive the Federal requirement for flood insurance when data is submitted to show that the property or structure is at or above the elevation of the base flood.

In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, this notice seeks comments concerning the information collection outlined in 44 CFR part 61, as it pertains to application for National Flood Insurance Program insurance. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) is authorized by Public Law 90– 448 (1968) and expanded by Public Law 93–234 (1973). The National Flood Insurance Act of 1968 requires that FEMA provides flood insurance at full actuarial rates reflecting the complete flood risk to structures built or substantially improved on or after the effective date for the initial Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) for the community, or after December 31, 1974, whichever is later, so that the risks associated with buildings in flood-prone areas are borne by those located in such areas and not by the taxpayers at large. In accordance with Public Law 93–234, the purchase of flood insurance is mandatory when Federal or federally related financial assistance is being provided for acquisition or construction of buildings located, or to be located, within FEMA-identified special flood hazard areas of communities that are participating in the NFIP. When flood damage occurs to insured property, information is collected to report, investigate, negotiate and settle the claim.

Comment Request

AGENCY: Federal Emergency Management Agency, DHS.

ACTION: Notice and request for comments.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), 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 continuing information collection. In 
accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, this notice seeks 
comments concerning information required by FEMA to amend or revise 
National Flood Insurance Program Maps to remove certain property from 
the 1-percent annual chance floodplain.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: With the passage of the Flood Disaster 
Protection Act of 1973, an owner of a structure, with a federally 
backed mortgage, located in the 1-percent annual chance floodplain, was 
required to purchase federal flood insurance. This was in response to 
the escalating damage caused by flooding and the unavailability of 
flood insurance from commercial insurance companies. As part of this 
effort, FEMA mapped the 1-percent annual chance floodplain in 
communities. However, due to scale limitations, individual structures 
that may be above the base flood cannot always be shown as being out of 
the 1-percent annual chance floodplain. FEMA will issue a Letter of Map 
Amendment (LOMA) to waive the Federal requirement for flood insurance 
when data is submitted to show that the property or structure is at or 
above the elevation of the base flood.
