National Flood Insurance Program: April 1, 2015, Program Changes

FEMA continues to take important steps to implement changes to the National Flood Insurance Program as called upon by the Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012 (Biggert-Waters) and the Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act of 2014 (HFIAA).
