LOUISIANA DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION AND DEVELOPMENT

Amite River at LA 10 March 1999

The Department of Transportation and Development is the State Coordinating Agency for the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) as designated by the Governor. The purpose of the program is to promote local government compliance with NFIP regulations in order to ensure the availability of low-cost flood insurance and in doing so minimize loss of life and property due to catastrophic flooding. This is accomplished through on-site assessments, distribution of a quarterly newsletter, conducting workshops, providing technical assistance on local government ordinance development and participation in post-disaster Flood Hazard Mitigation activities. The program is funded by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in coordination with the Louisiana Office of Emergency Preparedness on a 75% Federal and 25% State basis.
