USDA/NRCS RIN: 0578-AA71 Publication ID: Fall 2023 
Title: ●Floodplain Management Regulations 

The Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) must revise its existing regulation, published in 1979, to incorporate the Federal Flood Risk Management Standard and to make other changes to align with current authorities. This rule provides for the standard of flood resiliency and floodplain management required by Executive Order 13690. It also gives the flexibility for NRCS to apply a floodplain definition that is case-specific, considering local requirements, the voluntary nature of NRCS programs, definitions used by partnering entities, and the geographic setting. The rule’s objective is to ensure transparency in how NRCS will provide technical and financial assistance in floodplains consistent with Executive Order 13690.
