Office of Energy and Planning (OEP) administers the
NFIP in New Hampshire and receives a grant from the
Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for this
work. Through FEMA’s Community Assistance Program,
OEP provides technical assistance to communities and
the public on floodplain management and helps to promote
sound land use planning techniques that will reduce
flood losses. OEP conducts Community Assistance Visits
to ensure that communities participating in the NFIP
are meeting program goals. OEP staff is available
to help you and your community understand the NFIP.
OEP provides assistance on Flood Insurance, Floodplain Maps and Studies, Floodplain Outreach, and Floodplain Regulations. To keep up-to-date on news and events, please go to the Floodplain News and Events page.
The NH Floodplain Management Program coordinates closely with the FEMA Regional Office in Boston as well as other federal, state, regional, and local agencies and organizations. For a complete list, please go to the Links to Other Agencies and Organizations page.
