    Flood Hazard Area

    The Biggert-Waters National Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012 provides long-term changes to the National Flood Insurance Program. Under the new law, rates are likely to increase overall to reflect the true flood risk of your home or business and many insurance discounts will be eliminated. FEMA has provided the documents below for further information.
