CALL TO ACTION Regarding The National Flood Insurance Program

CALL TO ACTION Regarding The National Flood Insurance Program

With all that is currently in the news about Hurricane Harvey (see this recent article for a good summary) and the flooding happening in South Texas this post and need seems particularly timely.  Currently the National Hurricane Center is projecting that According to their website, The National Flood Insurance Program "aims to reduce the impact of flooding on private and public structures. It does so by providing affordable insurance to property owners and by encouraging communities to adopt and enforce floodplain management regulations. These efforts help mitigate the effects of flooding on new and improved structures. Overall, the program reduces the socio-economic impact of disasters by promoting the purchase and retention of general risk insurance, but also of flood insurance, specifically."  In Florida this is particularly meaningful because Florida has more participants in the NFIP than any other state!  Without this program in place as many as 40,000 real estate transactions are in jeopardy each month

The program sunsets at the end of September unless it is extended.  Please click here to sign the request to Congress to re-authorize the program and preserve home values in low-lying and flood-prone areas.
