OFMA Support for FY 2018 Appropriations for FEMA Floodplain Mapping and Pre-Disaster Mitigation Programs.

posted Jul 19, 2017, 1:51 PM by OFMA

In response to an ASFPM call for action, the Ohio Floodplain Management Association has sent a letter of support to Ohio's Congressional delegation to fund FEMA Mapping and Mitigation programs at their authorized levels.  The FEMA Floodplain Mapping and Pre-Disaster Mitigation Programs have contributed significantly to the flood risk awareness and mitigation successes across Ohio.  As a partner in flood mapping and mitigation projects, Ohio communities recognize that the FEMA mapping and mitigation programs use diverse funding sources and leverage state and local cost-share funds and data.  These are effective ways to engage everyone with an interest in managing our nation's flood risk.  The full text of the OFMA letter of support can be downloaded below.

ASFPM Revises CEC Policies for CFMs

posted Oct 28, 2015, 12:03 PM by OFMA   [ updated Oct 28, 2015, 12:03 PM ]

  • CFMs must acquire 16 CECs over the two-certification period.  The requirement limiting application of 12 CECs toward certification requirements within one year has been removed.

  • ASFPM’s qualifying CEC subject matter is quite broad. Anything reasonably deemed to be flood-related and/or addressing floodplain management may be considered eligible for CECs. 

  • Credit may only be claimed once per certification period for each unique activity (e.g. CECs will only be given credit for the first time a CFM attends / teaches a course, even if CFM attended / taught it multiple times during their certification period).

Guidance from the ASFPM is available for download below.
