Cooperating Technical Partners (CTP) Program - Region 4

Posted: April 15, 2021

Deadline: May 31, 2021

Grantor: Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)

Additional Information

The Cooperating Technical Partners (CTP) Program exists to strengthen and enhance the effectiveness of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). The CTP Program supports efforts to Strengthen National Preparedness and Resilience, one of six main goals of the 2020-2024 DHS Strategic Plan. Additionally, the program supports the National Mitigation Investment Strategy, a supporting document to Presidential Policy Directive (PPD-8) on National Preparedness and Strategic Goal One and Two of FEMA’s Strategic Plan, Building a Culture of Preparedness and Readying the Nation for Catastrophic Disaster. It helps achieve these goals by fostering strong federal, state, tribal, regional and local partnerships to identify flood risks, reduce flood losses and promote community resiliency.

The CTP program supports the FY 2021 Risk MAP Program Objectives as they continue to sharpen focus on advancing mitigation actions and prioritizing the technical credibility of its data and community engagement throughout the Risk MAP lifecycle. Furthermore, Risk MAP’s FY 2021 approach will continue to focus on:

  • Initiating new projects in watersheds with high risk; significant flood hazard data update needs
  • Integrating data developed by mapping partners and data provided by other stakeholders into mitigation planning, risk assessments as well as informing development of actionable mitigation strategies
  • Helping create the potential to generate community actions to reduce flood risk, and
  • Partnering to maximize funds spent at local, state and federal level and ensure they are used in concert reducing duplication.
