The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has noted the substantial challenge of keeping flood hazard maps current for over 20,000 communities that are in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) and created the innovative Cooperating Technical Partners (CTP) Program in response. We are pleased to announce that the Polis Center qualified to partner with FEMA through its CTP program, thereby allowing Polis to collaborate with FEMA, participating NFIP communities, regional and state agencies, and others to maintain up-to-date flood hazard maps and other flood hazard information. Under this program, The Polis Center will continue to work closely with the Indiana Department of Natural Resources (IDNR), which is also a CTP, to update Indiana’s flood hazard maps and data.
