Flood Mapping Projects
|Name||FEMA Funding Year||Description
||FY2003 - FY2008
||Mississippi’s first Mapping Activity Statement (MAS) under the FEMA Map Modernization Program was signed in October of 2003 between MDEQ, MEMA and FEMA. In January 2004, MDEQ selected Mississippi Geographic Information, LLC (MGI) as the state’s map modernization contractor. 81 of Mississippi’s 82 counties were remapped during Map Mod (Rankin County was not mapped under Map Mod). As of February 2011, all 82 counties had their new countywide preliminary Digital Flood Insurance Rate Maps (DFIRMs). The preliminary FIRMs for each county are available for viewing or download of pdf files by clicking on the Map Mod link and then selecting the county of interest.
||The FY2009 FEMA funding year for DFIRM work is a transition year between the end of FEMA’s MapMOD Program (FY2003-2008), and FEMA’s new Risk MAP Program (FY2010-2014). Counties with new DFIRM work under the FY2009 FEMA funding include: DeSoto, George, Lauderdale, Lee, Rankin, Tate, Tunica, and Warren Counties. As they are delivered, the new preliminary FIRMs will be available for viewing or download of pdf files by clicking on the FY2009 link and then selecting the county of interest.
