Flood Map Update Process Enters the 90-Day Appeal Period

The statutory 90-day appeal period is underway for many coastal New Jersey and New York communities that have received updated Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs). During the appeal period, anyone can submit information that shows the proposed flood hazards or other information on the preliminary FIRM or in the Flood Insurance Study (FIS) report is not correct. The dates of the 90-day appeal period vary by community—you can check the dates that apply for your community on the Appeal Period Start and End Dates page.

For more information about the appeal and comment process and how to submit feedback, refer to the Region II Appeal Period page.
