Graham Announces $4.9 Million for SCDNR
WASHINGTON — U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today announced the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources (SCDNR) has been awarded a $4.9 million grant to support the state’s floodplain mapping project.
The grant of $4,906,361 will help improve South Carolina’s flood maps by creating more reliable, easy-to-use and readily available digital products. Modernized maps track actual risk more closely as well as assist new development and rebuilding efforts.
The South Carolina Department of Natural Resources’ Floodplain Mapping Program will produce Digital Flood Insurance Rate Maps (DFIRM) for the counties of Allendale, Bamberg, Barnwell, Clarendon, Hampton, Orangeburg, Williamsburg, Abbeville, Cherokee, Chester County, Chesterfield, Darlington, Dillon, Edgefield, Fairfield, Greenwood, Jasper, Lancaster, Laurens, Marion, Marlboro, McCormick, Newberry and Union.
The grant was awarded by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency.
