Flood Program Reauthorized Through May

Jan. 07, 2019

The Federal Emergency Management Agency resumed the sale of new insurance policies and the renewal of expiring policies under the National Flood Insurance Program. Congress passed ICBA-supported legislation reauthorizing the NFIP until May 31 before breaking for the holiday recess.

FEMA’s announcement rescinded previous guidance from Dec. 26 directing industry partners to suspend flood insurance sales operations due to the lapse in annual appropriations under the partial government shutdown.

Meanwhile, ICBA and other financial services groups reiterated their calls for banking regulators to revise a 2016 proposed rule on private flood insurance. In a joint letter ahead of the expected release of a final rule next month, the organizations provided six recommendations on mandatory coverage terms, contractual provisions, state law compliance, and more.
