    Why Should I Take Action? 

    Pending tax reform plans are a threat to tax benefits of owning a home for 95% of American families. Incentivizing home buyers with tax benefits has a positive effect on families, communities, and the economy. Taking action would protect homeowners, especially middle-class ones.

So far, individual donations combined with national, state, and local associations total $1.8 million. REALTORS® can donate funds through the REALTORS® Relief Foundation (RRF).

    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.
