Have a minute? Participate in the National Association of REALTORS® Call for Action: Tell Congress to Reauthorize the National Flood Insurance Program.
The National Association of REALTORS (NAR) needs your help to send messages to Members of Congress urging them to support a comprehensive reauthorization of the NFIP.
The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) will expire on July 31, denying necessary insurance coverage to homeowners and buyers in more than 20,000 communities nationwide. Congress must act now to reform and extend the NFIP.
Urge Congress to extend the NFIP and pass meaningful reforms to ensure long-term viability of the programCLICK HERE TO ACT NOW
If Congress fails to take action to reauthorize the NFIP, it will expire by July 31, 2018.
• Reauthorizing and gradually strengthening the NFIP so it is sustainable over the long run;
• Encouraging the development of private market options to offer comparable flood insurance coverage at lower cost than NFIP;
• Providing federal assistance to high-risk property owners, including guaranteed loans, grants and buyouts in order to build to higher standards and keep insurance rates affordable;
• Provide fair flood insurance rates that better reflect the property’s flood risk; Improving flood map accuracy, so fewer property owners have to file expensive appeals.
