Flood insurance is a federally underwritten program that can help you repair or replace your structure and belongings after a flood. The federal government requires most mortgage holders in high-risk areas (known as Special Flood Hazard Areas) to carry flood insurance.
However, if you are newly mapped into a high-risk area, the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) has cost-saving options to help reduce the cost of flood insurance. Most property owners can purchase a low-cost Preferred Risk Policy for the first two years after the maps become effective and then after that, grandfather the lower-risk zone for future rating. Property owners should contact their insurance agent for more details.

low or moderate flood risk
Flood insurance is mandatory and will be federally required for most mortgage holders. Insurance costs may rise to reflect the risk.
Preferred Risk Policy
(PRP) Extension & “Grandfathering” offers savings. The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) has extended the purchase of low-cost PRP for two years for properties newly mapped into a high-risk zone. In addition, are “grandfathering” rules to recognize policyholders having built in compliance with the flood map or who maintain continuous coverage. Insurance agents can provide more details on how to save.

Flood insurance is optional, but recommended.
The risk has only been reduced, not removed. Flood insurance can still be obtained at lower rates. More than 20 percent of all flood insurance claims come from policies in moderate- and low-risk areas.
