A Community Voice Issues Public Comment on FEMA Notice
* * *
Although the imagery of flooding post Hurricane Katrina of a city that resembled a bowl of floating roof tops is consistent with possibilities, the nightmare of heavy rains continues to flood communities that never flooded in that way before. Our members are calling for new programs to teach children how to swim because the flooding is such a strong consideration.
In response to questions posed in the FEMA RFI, we ask that you:
1. Consider a new plan for
Relocation of low to moderate income homeowners and tenants
Mitigation/elevation/storm-proofing of low to moderate income homeowners and rental housing for low to moderate income homeowners.
Increase NFIP funds to
Make buyouts attractive to homeowners by recognizing the cost of moving to desirable areas, far from flooding, pollution, or other hazards. Remove the cost-share requirement for low-income communities.
On behalf of low to moderate income people,
A Community Voice
