The FPMS program provides a full range of information, technical services and planning guidance and assistance on floods and floodplain issues that are needed to support effective floodplain management. The types of activities that are appropriate under this authorization include floodplain delineation, dam failure analysis, hurricane evacuation, flood warning, flood damage reduction, stormwater management, flood proofing and inventories of flood prone structures. For non-federal partners, these studies are conducted at a 100% Federal expense. For more, view the Floodplain Management Services Fact Sheet with a sample letter to request support.
Silver Jackets Program: Silver Jackets teams are collaborative state-led interagency teams, continuously working together to reduce flood risk at the state level. Through the Silver Jackets program, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, additional federal, state and sometimes local and Tribal agencies provide a unified approach to addressing a state’s priorities.
