Flood Risk

Consistent with Section 100220(a) of P.L. 112-141, agencies were asked to identify programs that related to determining flood risk, including investments in the 3D Elevation Program (3DEP). 3DEP is a national program managed by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) to acquire high-resolution elevation data. The goal of the cooperatively funded program is by 2023 to complete national lidar coverage for the conterminous United States, Hawaii, and the U.S. territories; and IfSAR for Alaska.  3DEP provides a systematic approach for aligning federal, state and local investments in digital elevation models.

The number of programs and funding amounts for those programs were generally consistent with expectations.
