“Founded in 1968, the NFIP protects U.S. residents against the financial hardships of flooding. The NFIP has a proud legacy of helping people before, during and after flood disasters.

Over the next 50 years – and beyond – the NFIP is charting a bold course. The goal is to double the number of properties covered by flood insurance and quadruple the amount invested in mitigation.

To reach these goals, the NFIP is reducing complexity, updating offerings, improving the claims process and increasing transparency. Above all, the program will continue to ensure that our policyholders and our customers are foremost our our minds.”
