REALTOR® Call To Action to Reauthorize Flood Insurance Program

The National Association of REALTORS (NAR) needs your help to send messages to Members of Congress urging them to support a comprehensive reauthorization of the NFIP.

Reauthorization will make a number of critical improvements to the NFIP including increased funds for mitigation activities, caps on overall premium increases, improved claim and mapping processes, as well as removing hurdles for more private market participation in the flood insurance market.

Reauthorization of the NFIP will help over 5 million homeowners in 22,000 communities around the country, so it is critical Congress acts now.

If Congress fails to take action to reauthorize the NFIP, it will expire by September 30, 2017.

Disaster Relief Available to REALTORS®

None of us want to think about being affected by a disaster. However, the news is constantly filled with stories of flooding or fires, and either event unfortunately serves as a reminder that the threat of being personally touched by a disaster is always ever-present.

Did you know that as a REALTOR® member of RealTracs, you have a resource readily available through the RealTracs Rising Hope Disaster Relief Fund?  This assistance is available to not only REALTORS® but their immediate families, and employees of REALTOR® Associations.

The RealTracs Rising Hope Disaster Relief Fund was established in 2011 in response to the flooding that affected so much of the Middle Tennessee area in May 2010.  It’s mission is to help REALTORS® across the country during times of need with housing related financial assistance in response to a disaster.
