Description: The Cooperating Technical Partners (CTP) Program exists to strengthen and enhance the effectiveness of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). The CTP Program supports Strengthening National Preparedness and Resilience, one of five basic missions of the DHS 2014 Quadrennial Homeland Security Review. Additionally, the program supports the National Mitigation Investment Strategy, a supporting document to Presidential Policy Directive (PPD-8) on National Preparedness and Strategic Goal One and Two of FEMA's Strategic Plan, building a culture of preparedness and Readying the Nation for Catastrophic Disaster. It helps achieve these goals by fostering strong federal, state, tribal, regional and local partnerships to identify flood risks, reduce flood losses and promote community resiliency. The goals of the CTP Program are to primarily 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 hazard risk and leads to action that reduces flood risk to life and property. The CTP supports Risk MAP to develop flood hazard data and maps for communities that have never had identified risks as well as building on effective flood hazard data and flood insurance rate maps (FIRMS); increase public awareness of risk and potential mitigation options to reduce risk and better inform mitigation planning. Additional information about Risk MAP (including goals, strategies, progress and success stories), can be found on FEMA's website at https://www.fema.gov/risk-mapping-assessment-and-planning-risk-map. For additional information on the CTP Program, please visit the CTP Program website located at https://www.fema.gov/cooperating-technical-partners-program. The CTP program supports the FY 2020 Risk MAP Program Objectives as they continue to sharpen focus on advancing mitigation actions and prioritizing the technical credibility of its data and community engagement throughout the Risk MAP lifecycle. Furthermore, Risk MAP's FY 2020 approach will continue to focus on: 1) Initiating new projects in watersheds with high risk; significant flood hazard data update needs; 2) Integrating data developed by mapping partners and data provided by other stakeholders into mitigation planning, risk assessments as well as informing development of actionable mitigation strategies; 3) Helping create the potential to generate community actions to reduce flood risk; and 4) Partnering to maximize funds spent at local, state and federal level and ensure they are used in concert reducing duplication. Focusing on these areas will allow Risk MAP to continue to pursue our key program measures and commitments that are reported externally and will provide the necessary management tools to assess performance and demonstrate Risk MAP's value and effectiveness to program sponsors and stakeholders.
