You may contact the Information Management Division for copies of the proposed collection of information at email address: FEMAInformation-Collections-Management@ fema.dhs.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Stafford Act, Title VI, Emergency Preparedness (42 U.S.C. 5195–5195(a)) identifies the purpose of emergency preparedness ‘‘for the protection of life and property in the United States from hazards.’’ It directs that the Federal Government ‘‘provide necessary direction, coordination, and guidance’’ as authorized for a comprehensive emergency preparedness system for all hazards. Emergency preparedness is defined as all ‘‘activities and measures designed or undertaken to prepare or minimize the effects of a hazard upon the civilian population. . .’’ The ‘‘conduct of research’’ is among the measures to be undertaken in preparation for hazards. Collection of Information Title: Post Disaster Survivor Preparedness Research Survey. Type of Information Collection: Revision of a currently approved information collection. OMB Number: 1660–0146 FEMA Forms: FEMA Form FF–008– FY–21–112 (formerly FEMA Form 519– 0–54), Post Disaster Survivor Preparedness Research: Instruments Abstract: The economic and human toll of major disasters in the United States is increasing and historically underserved communities are disproportionately impacted. Poverty, race, limited English proficiency, age, and other demographic, cultural, and socio-economic variables can significantly inhibit people’s ability to take steps to prepare. To reverse this trend, emergency managers must ensure historically undeserved communities receive critical information that helps each person take steps to prepare themselves, their families, and their communities. To achieve equity in opportunities to prepare for disasters, FEMA proposes a series of qualitative focus groups, cognitive interviews, and targeted surveys to better understand individual experiences within historically underserved communities during recent disasters. FEMA Form 519–0–54 is a combined instrument that contains the script and question bank for conducting the focus groups, cognitive interviews, and surveys.

ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:01 Oct 12, 2021 Jkt 256001 Comments are requested on proposed flood hazard determinations, which may include additions or modifications of any Base Flood Elevation (BFE), base flood depth, Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA) boundary or zone designation, or regulatory floodway on the Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs), and where applicable, in the supporting Flood Insurance Study (FIS) reports for the communities listed in the table below. The purpose of this notice is to seek general information and comment regarding the preliminary FIRM, and where applicable, the FIS report that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has provided to the affected communities. The FIRM and FIS report are the basis of the floodplain management measures that the community is required either to adopt or to show evidence of having in effect in order to qualify or remain qualified for participation in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). DATES: Comments are to be submitted on or before January 11, 2022. ADDRESSES: The Preliminary FIRM, and where applicable, the FIS report for each community are available for inspection at both the online location https://hazards.fema.gov/femaportal/ prelimdownload and the respective Community Map Repository address listed in the tables below. Additionally, the current effective FIRM and FIS report for each community are accessible online through the FEMA Map Service Center at https:// msc.fema.gov for comparison.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FEMA proposes to make flood hazard determinations for each community listed below, in accordance with section 110 of the Flood Disaster Protection Act of 1973, 42 U.S.C. 4104, and 44 CFR 67.4(a). These proposed flood hazard determinations, together with the floodplain management criteria required SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00093 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 56977 by 44 CFR 60.3, are the minimum that are required. They should not be construed to mean that the community must change any existing ordinances that are more stringent in their floodplain management requirements. The community may at any time enact stricter requirements of its own or pursuant to policies established by other Federal, State, or regional entities. These flood hazard determinations are used to meet the floodplain management requirements of the NFIP. The communities affected by the flood hazard determinations are provided in the tables below. Any request for reconsideration of the revised flood hazard information shown on the Preliminary FIRM and FIS report that satisfies the data requirements outlined in 44 CFR 67.6(b) is considered an appeal. Comments unrelated to the flood hazard determinations also will be considered before the FIRM and FIS report become effective. Use of a Scientific Resolution Panel (SRP) is available to communities in support of the appeal resolution process. SRPs are independent panels of experts in hydrology, hydraulics, and other pertinent sciences established to review conflicting scientific and technical data and provide recommendations for resolution. Use of the SRP only may be exercised after FEMA and local communities have been engaged in a collaborative consultation process for at least 60 days without a mutually acceptable resolution of an appeal. Additional information regarding the SRP process can be found online at https://www.floodsrp.org/pdfs/ srp_overview.pdf. The watersheds and/or communities affected are listed in the tables below. The Preliminary FIRM, and where applicable, FIS report for each community are available for inspection at both the online location https:// hazards.fema.gov/femaportal/ prelimdownload and the respective Community Map Repository address listed in the tables. For communities with multiple ongoing Preliminary studies, the studies can be identified by the unique project number and Preliminary FIRM date listed in the tables. Additionally, the current effective FIRM and FIS report for each community are accessible online through the FEMA Map Service Center at https://msc.fema.gov for comparison.
