SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This proposed information collection previously published in the Federal Register on January 13, 2017 at 82 FR 4372 with a 60 day public comment period. FEMA received one comment from an individual requesting to review all forms associated with the collection. The Records Management Division provided the forms to the requester. The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) is codified as 42 U.S.C. 4001, et sec. and 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 provide flood insurance at full actuarial rates with limited exceptions for certain structures 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 risk 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, and negotiate in order to settle the claim. The NFIP Appeals Process Section 205 of The Bunning-BereuterBlumenauer Flood Insurance Reform Act (FIRA) of 2004, Public Law 108– 264, requires FEMA to establish by regulation an additional process for the appeal of decisions of flood insurance claims issued through the NFIP. Consequently, FEMA published an interim final rule on May 26, 2006 (71 FR 30294) and a final rule on October 13, 2006 (71 FR 60435) codifying into regulation what was previously an existing informal process to handle appeals regarding decisions related to coverage, or claims under the NFIP.

Records Management Division, 500 C Street SW., Washington, DC 20472-

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This proposed information collection 
previously published in the Federal Register on January 13, 2017 at 82 
FR 4372 with a 60 day public comment period. FEMA received one comment 
from an individual requesting to review all forms associated with the 
collection. The Records Management Division provided the forms to the 
requester. The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) is codified as 
42 U.S.C. 4001, et sec. and 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 provide flood insurance at full 
actuarial rates with limited exceptions for certain structures 
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 risk 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, and 
negotiate in order to settle the claim.

The NFIP Appeals Process

    Section 205 of The Bunning-Bereuter-Blumenauer Flood Insurance 
Reform Act (FIRA) of 2004, Public Law 108-264, requires FEMA to 
establish by regulation an additional process for the appeal of 
decisions of flood insurance claims issued through the NFIP. 
Consequently, FEMA published an interim final rule on May 26, 2006 (71 
FR 30294) and a final rule on October 13, 2006 (71 FR 60435) codifying 
into regulation what was previously an existing informal process to 
handle appeals regarding decisions related to coverage, or claims under 
the NFIP.
