Recognizing the financial hardship that might be experienced by some less economically advantaged communities, and in particular those newly identified by FEMA as flood-prone, in FY2000 Congress authorized establishment of a Flood Map Modernization Fund (FMMF).
16) In FY2003, for the first time since the creation of the Flood Map Modernization Fund, Congress appropriated a total of $150 million for FMMI, or half of the President's request.
Federal grants and in-kind services for non-emergency flood mapping for implementation of the FMMI are funded by the Flood Map Modernization Fund (FMMF), which , since FY2003, is an annual discretionary appropriation for FEMA.
That includes a $200 million decrease in proposed funding for UASI grants, a $100 million proposed decreased funding for the Disaster Relief Fund and proposed cuts to the Flood Map Modernization Fund
and the Pre-Disaster Mitigation Program.
