Take Action Now to Extend Flood Insurance For Homeowners

Posted


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. 

National Association of Realtors® President Elizabeth Mendenhall released the following statement: “Flooding is the most common and costly natural disaster in the United States. Without an extension of authority, the National Flood Insurance Program cannot write or renew flood insurance in 22,000 communities nationwide. The bill passed by the House today ensures the program remains available to those Americans who rely upon it, while enabling Congress to continue working toward a long-term reauthorization and reform measure. We urge the Senate to take swift action on this bill before the program expires on July 31.”

Take action by urging Congress to extend the NFIP and pass meaningful reforms to ensure long-term viability of the program. Take action here.
