NFIP Extended to Dec. 8th - ASK CONGRESS TO PASS THE 21ST CENTURY FLOOD REFORM ACT

NFIP

 

The United States Senate voted to pass a three-month extension of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).  The House of Representatives passed the legislation September 8th, 2017 and the President quickly sign the bill into law later that day. This legislation ensures that the NFIP will not lapse on September 30, 2017 but will extend to December 8th, 2017.

Ask Congress to reauthorize the National Flood Insurance Program by urging them to support H.R. 2874, “The 21st Century Flood Reform Act."

 

 H.R. 2874 reauthorizes the NFIP long term and makes a number of critical improvements to the NFIP including...

Increased funds for mitigation activities

Caps on overall premium increases

Improved claim and mapping processes

As well as removing hurdles for more private market participation in the flood insurance market.

Reauthorization of the NFIP will help over 5 million homeowners in 22,000 communities around the country and save over 40,000 property sales per month!
