You may contact the Information Management Division for copies of the proposed collection of information at email address: FEMA-InformationCollections-Management@fema.dhs.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) codified as 42 U.S.C. 4001, et seq. is authorized by Public Law 90–448 (1968) and expanded by Public Law 93– 234 (1973). The Department of Homeland Security, Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) administers the NFIP. The NFIP’s major objective is to assure that participating communities are achieving the flood loss reduction objectives through adoption and enforcement of adequate land use and control measures. Sections 1315 and 1361 provide the basis for FEMA’s process to evaluate how well communities are implementing their floodplain management programs. Title 44 CFR 59.22 directs the respondent to submit evidence of the corrective and preventive measures taken to meet the flood loss reduction objectives. The two key methods FEMA uses in determining community assistance needs are through the Community Assistance Contact (CAC) and Community Assistance Visit (CAV), which serve to provide a systematic means of monitoring community NFIP compliance. Through the CAC and CAV, FEMA can also determine to what extent communities are achieving the flood loss reduction objectives of the NFIP. By providing assistance to communities, the CAC and CAV also serve to enhance FEMA’s goals of reducing future flood losses, thereby achieving the NFIP’s cost-containment objective. The burden hours and costs associated with this collection were reevaluated which led to the main revision in this extension request.
