FEMA and NJDEP To Host Federal Flood Risk Management Standards Training

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Region 2 Floodplain Management and Insurance Office and the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection’s (NJDEP) State National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) Coordinator's office will be offering two virtual training sessions on the Federal Flood Risk Management Standards in New Jersey.

The virtual training sessions will take place Wednesday, January 25, at 11 a.m. and Thursday, January 26, at 1 p.m.  There is no cost to attend the training sessions, but prior registration is required.  

The training will focus on two recent FEMA policies and the accompanying Draft New Jersey Guidebook for Implementing the Federal Flood Risk Management Standard (FFRMS). These changes affect the design flood elevations for projects funded with Federal Public Assistance and Mitigation funding. Together with FEMA’s policy on the use of available flood hazard information, a federal minimum standard has been established that adds additional height requirements above FEMA’s Base Flood Elevation (BFE) mapping. It is anticipated that other Federal agencies will update their regulations in the future to comply with these policies.

Please share this information with your floodplain manager, construction official, and other interested parties. Please see the announcement from FEMA and the NJDEP for additional information.
