The Region II office of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has initiated a coastal flood study to produce updated Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) for communities in coastal New Jersey and New York, including New York City. The map update process has now entered the statutory 90-day appeal period during which local community officials and the public can provide feedback if they believe the proposed information is not correct.
Feedback can be provided about flood hazard information and other map features such as corporate boundaries or street names until the end of the appeal period. You can find the start and end dates of the appeal period for your community and more information about the appeal and comment process on the Region II Appeal Period page.
The Preliminary Flood Map Feedback Portal allows local community officials and the public to submit feedback on the new maps and track the status of requests online. This tool is available for use for the New York and New Jersey communities listed on the Region II Appeal Period page. Use of the Portal is not required. If you’d prefer to provide information using a different method, the Submissions fact sheet provides more information.
Before you get started using the Portal, please review the Help resources available through the Portal homepage.
