Title: Floodplain Management and Protection of Wetlands (FR-6272) 

This final rule would revise HUD’s regulations governing floodplain management and the protection of wetlands to implement the Federal Flood Risk Management Standard (FFRMS), in accordance with Executive Order 13690 (Establishing a Federal Flood Risk Management Standard and a Process for Further Soliciting and Considering Stakeholder Input), improve the resilience of HUD-assisted or financed projects to the effects of climate change and natural disasters, and provide for greater flexibility in the use of HUD assistance in floodways under certain circumstances. This rule also revises HUD’s floodplain and wetland regulations to streamline them, improve overall clarity, and modernize standards.
