Flood Insurance Reform - Resources for Property Owners and Renters, Insurance Agents, Real Estate Agents and Community Officials

Main Content

Our Resource Center is designed to help connect property owners and renters, insurance agents, real estate agents and community officials with the information they need to conduct their business, mitigate risk and insure their property.


Property Owners and Renters

Insurance Agents

The agency is working closely with its National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) Direct Servicing Agent (DSA) and Write Your Own (WYO) program participating insurance companies that sell and service federal flood insurance so eligible policyholders may receive refunds beginning this fall. The agency has also issued guidance so most impacted policyholders won’t be required to pay rates higher than the law now requires during the time the rate tables are being developed.

Insurance agents may find guidance in the WYO Bulletins the agency issues to the NFIP DSA and WYO companies. Information can also be found by visiting the Flood Insurance Reform webpage under FEMA.gov.
