Agency Information Collection Activities: Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request; Exemption of State-Owned Properties Under Self-Insurance Plan
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, invites the general public to take this opportunity to comment on a reinstatement, without change, of a previously approved information collection for which approval has expired. FEMA will submit the information collection abstracted below to the Office of Management and Budget for review and clearance in accordance with the requirements of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. The submission will describe the nature of the information collection, the categories of respondents, the estimated burden (i.e., the time, effort and resources used by respondents to respond) and cost, and the actual data collection instruments FEMA will use.
National Flood Insurance Program Nationwide Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) announces the availability of a final Nationwide Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (NPEIS) evaluating the environmental impacts of proposed modifications to the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). Pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969, as amended, the Council on Environmental Quality's (CEQs) regulations for implementing the procedural provisions of NEPA, and FEMA's Directive 108-1 titled ``Environmental Planning and Historic Preservation Responsibilities and Program Requirements,'' FEMA has considered comments received on the NFIP Draft NPEIS, which was issued in April 2017, and identifies FEMA's preferred alternative in the NFIP Final NPEIS.
