National Flood Insurance Program’s Authority To Issue New Policies Lapses At Midnight

The NFIP will not be reauthorized by Congress by midnight of May 31, 2010. Therefore, the Program will experience a hiatus – a period without authority to:

  • issue new policies for which application and premium payment dates are on or after June 1, 2010, or
  • issue increased coverage on existing policies for which endorsement and premium payment dates are on or after June 1, 2010, or
  • issue renewal policies for which the renewal premium is received by the company on or after June 1, 2010, and after the end of the 30-day renewal grace period, until Congress reauthorizes the Program.

While awaiting Congressional reauthorization, FEMA is issuing the guidance contained in the attached bulletin Within this bulletin, is a set of Frequently Asked Questions concerning NFIP authorization.

The hiatus period is expected to end soon.
