    CLICK HERE TO TAKE ACTION NOW!



    The National Association of REALTORS (NAR) needs your help to send 

    messages to Members of Congress urging them to support a  comprehensive

    reauthorization of the NFIP.


    Reauthorization will make a number of critical improvements to the NFIP including 

    increased funds for mitigation activities, caps on overall premium increases, 

    improved claim and mapping processes, as well as removing hurdles for 

    more private market participation in the flood insurance market.


    Reauthorization of the NFIP will help over 5 million homeowners in 22,000 

    communities around the country, so it is critical Congress acts now.


    If Congress fails to take action to reauthorize the NFIP, it will expire by September

    30, 2017.
