Floodplain Management

The National Flood Insurance Program

The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) is a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Program enabling property owners to purchase flood insurance and is designed to reduce the escalating costs of property damage caused by floods.

On November 18, 1981, Pasco County joined the NFIP so that property owners within Pasco County would have flood insurance available to them. 

In joining the program we agreeded to adopt and enforce floodplain management regulations including the latest Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) and
Flood Insurance Study (FIS).  The latest FIRMs are in a digital format and known as Digital Flood Insurance Rate Maps (DFIRMs).  The DFIRMs became effective September 26, 2014 after an 18-month Flood Map Modernization process
