National Flood Insurance Community Status and Public Notification

The National Flood Insurance Program enables property owners to purchase flood insurance. In return, communities agree to adopt and implement local floodplain management regulations that contribute to protecting lives and reducing the risk of new construction and substantial improvements from future flooding. 

Effective Dec. 2, 2020, a final rule modernized regulations that previously required FEMA to publish community eligibility in the Federal Register, now allows FEMA to publish this information on the internet or by another comparable method.

If you want to determine whether a particular community was suspended on the suspension date or for further information, please email:
