NFIP Reauthorization
On September 30, 2010, the President signed the National Flood Insurance Program Reextension Act of 2010, which Congress passed on September 24, 2010. This extends the National Flood Insurance Program until September 30, 2011.
 
Preferred Risk Policy Extension
There's good news for property owners who have been newly mapped into a high-risk flood area. FEMA is introducing cost saving insurance options through the NFIP that may benefit property owners. If a building has been newly mapped into a high-risk flood zone, the property owner may be eligible for significant savings with the NFIP's new Preferred Risk Policy Extension. While the PRP Extension option provides temporary relief, revisions to the NFIP's grandfather rules will offer a more permanent premium reduction. Share the information in the links below which can help ease the financial burden for eligible residents and business owners in your community.
