How the National Flood Insurance Program can benefit your clients

The National Flood Insurance Program was created in 1968 to mitigate future losses from flooding by offering insurance in communities that agree to enforce building standards designed to prevent flood damage. Of the more than 5 million homes insured through the NFIP, the majority are in Texas or Florida.

If you have clients in one of the many Texas communities that participate in the NFIP, learn more about the program and working with properties located in or near floodplains in a webinar with Josh Oyer, of the Texas Water Development Board, hosted by TAR Commercial. A course on the subject, “Floodplains and the National Flood Insurance Program,” will be offered for CE credit at the 2017 Texas REALTORS® Conference from September 8 to 11 at the Hilton Anatole in Dallas.

    Flood Taxes are being collected but I am not seeing improvements for the redirection of water in new communities with all the construction, Hts, Shady Acres, Cottage Grove

    I don’t see our county doing a whole lot to educate people about keeping the creek beds on their property cleared of blockages for water flow. The home owner has to take some responsibility. At least to notify the county or city officials of the blockage.
