NFIP Residential Historical Claims

The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) aims to reduce the impact of flooding—a burden not covered by homeowner’s insurance—by providing insurance to homeowners, renters, and business owners at a reasonable cost. NFIP coverage insures buildings and the policy owner’s possessions. The NFIP claims data comes from the NFIP legacy system as of 12/31/2016 and includes residential contracts only; contracts on business and other non-residential structures are excluded. The period of the data portrayed is from 1996-2016.

FEMA is changing the way in which this dataset is delivered to the public. For that reason, the dataset below will no longer be updated and will be archived by the end of April 2020. Please refer to the FIMA NFIP Redacted Claims Data Set( for similar information going forward. If you have any questions, please contact the OpenFEMA team at
