Additional Information

Since standard homeowners insurance does not cover flooding, it's important to have protection from the floods associated with hurricanes, tropical storms, heavy rains and other conditions that impact the U.S. The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) provides a means for property owners to financially protect themselves. The NFIP offers flood insurance to homeowners, renters, and business owners if their community participates in the NFIP.

The website has information about:
* How to decide if you need insurance and if so, how to get flood insurance
* The National Flood Insurance Program for residential and commercial coverage
* Emergency preparation and recovery
* Learn about disaster planning and assistance for your home and business


Contact your insurance agent to find out if your community participates in the National Flood Insurance Program.

Application Instructions

If your insurance agent doesn't sell flood insurance, contact The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) or call the referral center.
