NFWF Announces Release of the America the Beautiful Challenge Request for Proposals

New program coordinates funding from federal agencies and private sources into one competitive grant program to support conservation across the nation

May 4, 2022

The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) today announced the 2022 Request for Proposals for the America the Beautiful Challenge, a public-private grant program designed to support locally led, voluntary ecosystem restoration projects.  Approximately $85 million in grant funding is available.

This new program will invest in the restoration of watersheds, forests and grasslands while also working toward other goals consistent with the America the Beautiful Initiative, including strengthened resilience, equitable access to the outdoors, workforce development, migration corridors, habitat connectivity and collaborative conservation. 

The America the Beautiful Challenge coordinates funding from multiple federal agencies and private philanthropy into one competitive grant program, following the same conservation approach NFWF has used for nearly four decades.  This streamlines the application process, enabling larger, more impactful cross-boundary projects while making it easier for states, Tribes, territories, local groups, non-governmental organizations and others to apply for multiple funding sources with one application.

The America the Beautiful Challenge will seek to advance conservation and restoration projects that are consistent with at least one of the following core areas of need:

  • Conserving and restoring rivers, coasts, wetlands and watersheds
  • Conserving and restoring forests, grasslands and other important ecosystems that serve as carbon sinks
  • Connecting and reconnecting wildlife corridors, large landscapes, watersheds, and seascapes
  • Improving ecosystem and community resilience to coastal flooding, drought and other climate-related threats
  • Expanding access to the outdoors, particularly in underserved communities

Applicants are encouraged to develop large landscape-scale and/or cross-jurisdictional projects that advance existing conservation plans or are informed by Indigenous Traditional Knowledge.

Proposals are due July 21. For additional information about the America the Beautiful Challenge, please visit: https://www.nfwf.org/challenge.

About the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation – Chartered by Congress in 1984, the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) protects and restores the nation’s fish, wildlife, plants and habitats.  Working with federal, corporate and individual partners, NFWF has funded more than 6,000 organizations and committed $7.4 billion to conservation projects.  Learn more at www.nfwf.org.

PROGRAM UPDATES AND RELEASES


FEMA Releases Disaster Recovery Reform Act Video

June 2022

FEMA developed an introductory video to the Disaster Recovery Reform Act Section 1206 to arm floodplain administrators, emergency managers, elected officials and other stakeholders in the recovery process. The video will supply stakeholders with the information needed for successful reimbursement of these new eligible activities. Through the narrator’s story following a devastating disaster in her community, viewers will learn key eligibility requirements for communities, work and costs covered under the policy and how to seek reimbursement for these new activities. 

When disaster strikes, many communities have hundreds, if not thousands, of structures to protect against future damage or restore to local codes and standards. Section 1206 of the Disaster Recovery Reform Act authorizes FEMA to reimburse communities that participate in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) for the resources needed to effectively administer and enforce building codes and floodplain management regulations following a major disaster declaration. This creates new eligible activities through FEMA’s Public Assistance Program to carry out required post-disaster activities, increasing the overall speed of recovery and enhancing NFIP compliance.

Resilient Building Codes Toolkit Resource

June 2022

HUD added a new page dedicated to Resilient Building Codes and it is now available.  The webpage includes links to the newly released Resilient Building Codes Toolkit and will provide access to the recordings of the Resilient Building Codes Webinar series that took place in Spring 2022.

Why Focus on Building Codes?

Building codes underpin the key health and safety aspects of our built environment.  They are a combination of operational expectations and physical requirements, with variations in interpretation and application based on geographies.  They are governed at the state and local level but nearly always reference international and national codes and standards.  Climate change is a new risk that is not commonly addressed in existing codes and standards.

As Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) and CDBG Mitigation (MIT) grantees look to build back from disasters in more resilient ways and seek to mitigate damage from future hazards, understanding the role building codes can play in meeting their goals should not be underestimated.  The Resilient Building Codes Toolkit and Webinar Series are meant to guide the reader to determine what steps make the most sense for their communities to pursue to achieve resilience.

On the resource page:

  • The full Resilient Building Codes Toolkit, including individual links to each document contained within the toolkit
  • The webinar series recordings:
    • Making the Business Case – recorded on April 28, 2022
    • A Practitioner’s Guide – recorded on May 19, 2022
    • Action at the Community Level – recorded on May 26, 2022

FEMA, USFA Release Wildland Urban Interface Report

June 2022

FEMA’s U.S. Fire Administration released the “Wildland Urban Interface: A Look at Issues and Resolutions,” report.  The report raises awareness and initiates collaborative efforts to facilitate change in wake of catastrophic wildfire losses in the wildland urban interface.  This report highlights the wildland interface issues in the United States and will help the wildland and structural firefighting community and neighborhoods unite around key actions to reduce risk to themselves, to firefighters and the environment.

Wildfires are among the worst natural and man-made disasters facing our nation.  Factors such as climate change and reduced land management practices are significantly contributing to the cause, increasing the frequency and intensity of wildfires.

Federal agencies are working with partners to address many of the wildland interface challenges discussed in this report.  These efforts include:

  • Increasing forest and rangeland resiliency through prescribed burning and mechanical thinning.
  • Strengthening communication strategies and engagement operations through wildfire prevention and mitigation programs.
  • Proactively planning for and mitigating the continued effects of climate change.
  • Other high-priority areas in the report are also focused on firefighter health and safety, especially mental and behavioral health and public safety through improving evacuation procedures with efforts such as Reverse 911.

Partial Implementation of the Federal Flood Risk Management Standard for Public Assistance (Interim)

FEMA Policy 104-22-0003

June 3, 2022

FEMA announced its release of the Partial Implementation of the Federal Flood Risk Management Standard for Public Assistance (Interim) which provides elevation requirements for actions involving structures located in a designated floodplain.

FEMA is committed to leveraging its programs to ensure communities affected by current and future flood risk are less vulnerable to the loss of life and property.  Many communities are faced with aging infrastructure, which can increase risk from major disasters.  As the frequency of these disasters accelerates, the agency must increase climate adaptation investments across the nation.

The Federal Flood Risk Management Standard (FFRMS) is a flood standard established to increase community resilience to flooding.  This policy implements the portion of FFRMS that sets a higher elevation standard for structures in floodplains.

This policy establishes requirements for elevating and floodproofing structures funded under the Public Assistance (PA) program.  Requiring use of FFRMS will help ensure that the federal investment in structures is spent in a manner that improves community resilience.  The policy defines elevation and floodproofing requirements for structures within the 100 and 500-year floodplains.  The costs associated with elevating and floodproofing structures to meet the requirements of this policy are eligible for Public Assistance funding.

FEMA is prioritizing policy changes across its programs that advance the adoption and enforcement of disaster resistant building codes and standards to increase the Nation’s resilience to current and future risks from a changing climate.  FEMA continues to evaluate existing authorities to identify ways in which the agency can strengthen communities before, during, and after disasters across all programs.

Revised NFIP Technical Bulletin 7 has been Released

May 2022

FEMA Building Science Branch is pleased to announce the release of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) Technical Bulletin 7, Wet Floodproofing Requirements and Limitations For Buildings and Structures Located in Special Flood Hazard Areas in Accordance with the National Flood Insurance Program. Future technical bulletins will follow this publication’s new format.

Technical Bulletin 7 (TB 7) provides guidance on the NFIP floodplain management requirements for the design and construction of wet floodproofed buildings and structures in Special Flood Hazard Areas.

TB 7 discusses limitations on the use of wet floodproofing and how to evaluate the feasibility of using wet floodproofing measures for historic structures, agricultural structures and functionally dependent uses.

The major updates in TB-7 include:

  • Updated to be consistent with the requirements of FEMA Policy #104-008-03, Floodplain Management Requirements for Agricultural Structures and Accessory Structures, and FEMA P-2140, Floodplain Management Bulletin, Floodplain Management Requirements for Agricultural Structures and Accessory Structures.
  • Expanded discussion on best practices and measures to reduce flood damage when NFIP compliance is not required.
  • Clarification of when wet floodproofing measures that require human intervention can be used.

TB 7 also discusses NFIP regulations and how building design criteria apply to new construction, substantial improvement and substantial damage.

FEMA Releases New Flood Insurance Resources

May 2022

If a property owner doesn’t know their flood risk, they cannot know their premium rate or what mitigation actions to consider.

As FEMA rolled out the National Flood Insurance Program’s new rating system, Risk Rating 2.0: Equity in Action, the agency has heard questions from policyholders and industry partners such as, “How does FEMA calculate my rate?” and “How can I reduce my flood risk and pay less?”

To provide answers to these important questions, FEMA has published new materials to the Risk Rating 2.0: Equity in Action resource webpage on FloodSmart.gov.

These user-friendly educational tools are a part of the agency’s commitment to increasing transparency and communication.  The materials provide in-depth explanations on topics ranging from flood risk variables and individualized policy pricing to discounts and other options available to policyholders.

This collection is updated regularly and insurance providers are encouraged to use and share these resources to help their clients protect lives and to help close the flood insurance gap.

 


What’s Changed in Risk Rating 2.0 and CRS

May 2022

Risk Rating 2.0 (RR 2.0) rating methodology now incorporates a wide range of rating variables; however, two major ones that are no longer used are Base Flood Elevations and flood zones.  In the old methodology (RR 1.0), properties in moderate-low risk zones (e.g., B, C, X) with minimal losses could qualify for a lower-cost Preferred Risk Policy (PRP); however, they did not receive a CRS discount.  If they did not qualify for the PRP, they could be written as a standard-rated Zone X policy and receive 5% or 10% discount depending upon the CRS Class.  Buildings in Zone A would get the full discount.

In RR 2.0, because the flood zone is no longer a rating variable, the discount that had applied to just Zone A policies now applies to all policies.  So, a policy in Zone X receives the same discount.  While there are numerous variations and nuances.

FEMA Updates State and Local Mitigation Planning Policy Guides

April 19, 2022

FEMA updated its state and local mitigation planning policy guides to reflect programmatic and administrative regulatory changes.  The agency routinely updates the policies to continually improve and better support stakeholders in meeting federal requirements when creating hazard mitigation plans.

The updated policies facilitate consistent evaluation and approval of state and local hazard mitigation plans and promote mitigation planning and risk-informed decision-making.  They also support stakeholders in meeting federal requirements with their hazard mitigation plans to receive certain types of funding.

These are the next generation of policies that reinforce resilience as a whole-community effort that builds state and local capabilities to plan for long-term risk reduction, climate change and equitable outcomes.  Changes to state and local policies include:

The policies will become effective for all mitigation plan approvals one year from the official release date.  This provides a one-year transition period for state and local governments to meet the new requirements.

As of March 31, 85% of the nation’s population live in communities with current mitigation plans.  FEMA-approved hazard mitigation plans are required for certain types of federal grant funding.

The policies are the official interpretation of the requirements in the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act, as amended and other federal statutes as well in federal regulations, specifically Title 44 Code of Federal Regulations Part 201 Mitigation Planning.

EPA Tool Provides the Public with Customized Updates on Local Enforcement and Compliance Activities

March 22, 2022

EPA announced the release of a new web tool, called “ECHO Notify,” that empowers members of the public to stay informed about important environmental enforcement and compliance activities in their communities.  Through ECHO Notify, users can sign up to receive weekly emails when new information is available within the selected geographic area, such as when a violation or enforcement action has taken place at a nearby facility. 

ECHO Notify provides information on all EPA enforcement and compliance activities as well as activities of state and local governments under the Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, and the Safe Drinking Water Act.  

Increased transparency leads to stronger deterrence of environmental violations.  As more people play an active role in protecting their neighborhoods from pollution, EPA has developed ECHO Notify so that finding updates on environmental enforcement and compliance activities is as easy as checking your email.

Link to EPA’s website ECHO Notify,. On the homepage, you can: 

  • Select a geographic area and/or facility ID(s)
  • Choose the type of compliance and enforcement information of interest

EPA has prepared a short video that provides an overview of ECHO Notify and explains how to use it.  Link to the video, ECHO Tutorial: Intro to ECHO NotifyEXITEXIT EPA WEBSITE.
