Flood Control District Awarded Nearly $100,000 for Map Revision Program

The Harris County Flood Control District has been awarded nearly $100,000 to continue as a select partner with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in revising floodplain maps related to new development. The FEMA grant will fund the Letter of Map Revision (LOMR) Review Partners Program. A LOMR is FEMA's official modification to a Flood Insurance Rate Map or the Flood Insurance Study.
