 The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) will expire on September 30, 2017 without Congressional action. 

NAR is asking Members of Congress to support a five-year reauthorization of the NFIP.


GENERAL PURPOSE
To achieve reforms to improve the financial stability of the National Flood Insurance Program, to enhance the development of more accurate estimates of flood risk through new technology and better maps, to increase the role of private markets in the management of flood insurance risks, and to provide for alternative methods to insure against flood peril, and for other purposes.
 
On July 26, 2017, NAR, as part of a broad coalition of housing, lending, insurance and consumer groups, opposed a Federal Housing Administration (FHA) regulation barring lenders from accepting private flood insurance on FHA insured loans, and urged its immediate reversal.
On the same day, NAR wrote the full Senate requesting support and co-sponsorship of S. 563, "The Flood Insurance Market Parity & Modernization Act" (Heller [R-NV]; Tester [D-MT]). The bill would remove additional barriers to the private market, which increasingly, is offering better coverage at lower cost than the National Flood Insurance Program.
