Here are the Key Points to Remember:
- NAR is supportive of many components of the House package including:
- Strengthening access to private flood insurance as well as the NFIP
- $1 billion investment in mitigation so homeowners can lower their flood risk
- Streamlines community flood map appeals process
- A new overall cap on premiums ($10,000)
- NAR is asking for three specific things before the House votes on the package:
- NAR opposes the provision ending grandfathering of properties remapped after 4 years
- NAR is asking Congress to provide full cost impacts for a range of policyholders
- NAR is asking Congress to direct FEMA to produce building specific maps with elevation data
