AGENCY: 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 revised information collection. 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.

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.
