National Flood Insurance Program Extended to March 23, 2018

On February 9, 2019, Congress extended the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) as part of a broader budget agreement. NAR is urging the Senate to use the time to work on comprehensive NFIP legislation that provides a 5-year reauthorization and includes meaningful reforms to strengthen the program and open the door to a private market for flood insurance.

NAR sent a letter (link is external) in support of the budget agreement, which also extended several key tax provisions in addition to keeping the NFIP operating through March 23.
