Fiscal Year (FY) 2022 Cooperating Technical Partners (CTP) Program - Region 4

Funding Agency:
Department of Homeland Security

The Cooperating Technical Partners (CTP) Program exists to strengthen and enhance the effectiveness of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). The CTP program supports efforts to Strengthen National Preparedness and Resilience, one of the main goals of the 2020-2024 DHS Strategic Plan. Additionally, the program supports the 2022-2026 FEMA Strategic Plan, Goal 2: Lead whole of community in climate resilience and Goal 3: Promote and sustain a ready FEMA and a prepared nation. It helps achieve these goals by fostering strong federal, state, tribal, territorial, regional, and local partnerships to identify flood risks, reduce flood losses, and promote community resilience. It also supports the National Mitigation Investment Strategy, a supporting document to Presidential Policy Directive (PPD-8), National Preparedness. The CTP program also supports the objectives of equity and inclusion laid out in the President’s Justice 40 Initiative.

The objectives of the CTP program are primarily to support the mission and objectives of the NFIP’s Flood Hazard Mapping Program through FEMA’s flood hazard identification and risk assessment programs, including the Risk Mapping, Assessment and Planning (Risk MAP) initiative. The vision for Risk MAP is to deliver quality data that increases public awareness of flood risk and leads to action that reduces flood risk to life and property. The CTP supports Risk MAP in developing flood hazard data and maps for communities that have never had identified risks, building on effective flood hazard data and flood insurance rate maps (FIRMS), and increasing public awareness of flood risk and potential mitigation options to reduce that risk and better inform planning.
