National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP): Conforming Changes To Reflect the Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012 (BW-12) and the Homeowners Flood Insurance Affordability Act of 2014 (HFIAA), and Additional Clarifications for Plain Language
Document Number: 2018-13292
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-07-16
Agency: Federal Emergency Management Agency, Department of Homeland Security
The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), established pursuant to the National Flood Insurance Act of 1968, as amended, is a voluntary program in which participating communities adopt and enforce a set of minimum floodplain management requirements to reduce future flood damages. This proposed rule would revise the NFIP's implementing regulations to codify certain provisions of the Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012 and the Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act of 2014 that FEMA has already implemented and to clarify certain existing NFIP rules relating to NFIP operations and the Standard Flood Insurance Policy.
