About this Website

This website provides summaries of federal resources related to flood risk management. Users can search for the resources most relevant to their needs using filters to narrow their search.  Search results will provide summaries of federal resources and links to additional information about each resource.

Many of these federal resources complement state and local government efforts. As such, some federal resources can only be accessed through the state or local government. Regardless, it is important for people conducting flood risk management activities to engage their state and local officials early to ensure they are meeting any and all applicable non-federal requirements.

This website allows users to quickly discover federal resources relevant to their situation through three simple indicators:  potential resource applicant that it is AVAILABLE TO, PHASE of the flood risk management cycle most relevant, and TYPE of assistance being requested.  All, some, or none of the sub-indicator elements can be selected to fine-tune a search.  Additionally a word search functionality is available to further narrow the results to those which both match the indicators selected and where the resource title or description contains the word string exactly as noted.

This website was developed as a collaboration by the National Silver Jackets team and other federal partners. The purpose of creating the website is to assess the need and usefulness of such a tool that provides the ability for users to search for flood risk management related resources most relevant to their needs. While every attempt was made to identify all relevant federal resources, there may be resources available which are not summarized here. Additionally, most of the data captured is considered to be accurate as of September 2020.
