FY 2006 Priority:  In FY 2006, the priority is to fund the acquisition of severe repetitive loss properties as defined in the Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2004 (FIRA 2004), as well as non-residential properties that meet the same flood insurance claims thresholds as severe repetitive loss properties, defined as either:

  • Four or more flood insurance claim payments that each exceeded $5,000, with at least two of the payments occurring within a 10-year period; or
  • Two or more flood insurance claim payments that cumulatively exceeded the value of the property.

Selections for award are further prioritized to fund acquisitions that create the greatest amount of savings to the NFIF based on a benefit-cost analysis. A FEMA-approved State/Tribal standard or enhanced hazard mitigation plan is required for eligibility; however, a local plan is not required.

  • Sub-applications received: 35 projects for 56 properties totaling $14.9 million
