CALL FOR ACTION – NATIONAL FLOOD INSURANCE


Posted on August 28th, by Brenna Johnson in Uncategorized. No Comments

Dear Members,

Without Congressional action by September 30, 2017authority for the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) will expire.  If the NFIP lapses, more than 40,000 real estate transactions per month will be in jeopardy.

Urge your member of Congress to pass “The 21st Century Flood Reform Act” H.R. 2874 as soon as possible.

H.R. 2874 contains numerous provisions of critical importance to consumers and REALTORS:

  • Reauthorizes NFIP for a full 5 years,avoiding the uncertainty of short term extensions and potential shutdowns
  • Caps NFIP rates at $10,000 per year for property owners
  • Directs FEMA to develop more granular rate tables, to ensure fewer properties are over charged by NFIP
  • Sets aside $1 billion for flood mitigation assistance grants
  • Increases access to private market flood insurance

Tell Congress to PASS Flood Insurance Reform Now!
