What is the National Flood Insurance Program?

The program helps state, counties, municipalities and agencies to develop, implement and maintain appropriate floodplain management regulations. Administered by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) NFIP offers federally backed insurance money to communities that agree to adopt and enforce minimum standards for flood plain management to reduce future flood damage.
