FEMA’s Decertification of Levees is Blocked

Situation

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) notified some U.S. communities that as part of a national map modernization program, the agency intended to decertify certain levees. This would require mandated homeowners’ flood insurance of $50 million per year. On behalf of all the impacted communities, our team brought suit against FEMA to invalidate proposed maps that would decertify one of the country’s major levee systems.

Result

The federal agency—for the first and only time—shelved its proposed maps.
