The National Flood Insurance Program can be overwhelming in its scope. It addresses land use, construction techniques, mapping procedures, insurance rating, disaster recovery planning, and more, all for the purpose of reducing risk to lives and property in and near floodplains. But there is a significant amount of guidance available free from the federal agency charged with managing the NFIP.

Statutory and regulatory sources provide the foundation for understanding the “why” of the NFIP and its functionality, while technical guidance publications offer more of the “how” in attaining NFIP goals and objectives. How do we determine between construction techniques to minimize flood damages? How do we decide the best allocation of floodplain mapping resources? This course is intended to familiarize participants with the breadth and depth of information available and to point them in the right direction to find appropriate materials in addressing both “why” and “how”.


At the end of this course, participants will be able to:
• Distinguish between specific regulatory mandates and technical recommendations
• Understand the significance of technical guidance in the evolution of the National Flood Insurance Program
• Locate and responsibly utilize materials to guide sound floodplain management activities
