Interagency Nonstructural Flood Risk Management Efforts

Silver Jackets teams have completed hundreds of interagency nonstructural flood risk management efforts, with each agency using its own funds and programs to contribute to the effort. Below is a searchable list of efforts in progress or completed since 2011. Poster summaries of a representative sample of more recent interagency efforts are organized by State [pdf, 25.6 MB] and by Topic [pdf, 46.6 MB].
