The NFIP was created in 1968 to address the national crisis of underinsurance against flood risks. Not without its challenges, the NFIP continues to advance the cause of insuring America’s at-risk against flood perils—and now, has the opportunity to work in partnership with the private market to best serve those most vulnerable to flood losses. This Q & A session with FEMA leadership will address the NFIP’s past, its current objectives and focus for the future by asking your most pressing questions.
- In what ways is the NFIP supporting a post-Harvey/post-Irma America with coverage options?
- How can insurance professionals engage with the NFIP and the private market to best-cover their clients?
- How is the NFIP under the leadership of FEMA preparing for a future of increased flood activity?
