FEMA Mitigation Best Practices: FMI Branch Launches New State NFIP Staff Orientation Workshop: 'Communicate for Compliance' [open pdf - 32KB]
"When Georgia became the first of several FEMA Region IV states poised to lose key National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) staff within a few months, the Floodplain Management and Insurance Branch (FMI) rallied with a pilot orientation workshop to facilitate the transition. As a Contracted Technical Partner, the Floodplain Management Section of the Georgia Watershed Protection Branch provides critical technical assistance to both participating and potential member communities. The staff also offers guidance in floodplain management, oversees the Risk MAP (Mapping, Assessment, and Planning) program for Georgia, supervises the CAP-SSSE (Community Assistance Program - State Support Services Element) grants, conducts community assistance visits and compliance issues for the NFIP, and reviews flood damage prevention ordinances."
