FEMA Mitigation Best Practices: National Flood Insurance Program Compliance Coverage Helps Homeowners Stay Dry   [open pdf - 35KB]

Alternate Title: NFIP Compliance Coverage Helps Homeowners Stay Dry

"The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Best Practices Portfolio consists of mitigation stories submitted by individuals and communities that describe measures they have taken to reduce the loss of life and property from disasters. These Best Practices are meant to provide ideas and concepts about reducing losses and to encourage others to evaluate their own risk and consider mitigation as a long-term solution to reducing that risk." [...] "An often overlooked aspect in National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) policies has helped many homeowners in the State of Missouri finance required improvements that will save them from significant damage in future flooding events. Many of the Missouri homeowners flooded in 2008 are filing claims under the Increased Cost of Compliance (ICC) coverage to finance improvements that may save them from future damage." This and other individual FEMA Best Practices documents are also combined in "Mitigation Best Practices: Public and Private Sector Best Practice Stories for All Activity/Project Types in All States and Territories Relating to All Hazards [August 10, 2011]," which can be accessed at the following link: [https://www.hsdl.org/?abstract&did=683132]
