Floods are the most common and destructive natural disaster in the U.S. The Nat. Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), which collected about $3.8 billion in premiums and insured about $1.3 trillion in property in 2013, is administered by the Fed. Emergency Mngt. Agency (FEMA) and is a key component of the federal government's efforts to limit the damage and financial impact of floods. NFIP makes federally backed flood insurance available to property owners in participating communities. Also, through NFIP, FEMA maps floodplain boundaries, and requires participating communities to adopt and enforce floodplain management regulations that mitigate the effects of flooding. However, this program is unlikely to generate sufficient revenue to cover future catastrophic losses or repay billions of dollars borrowed from the Treasury Dept. to cover insurance claims from previous disasters. This report summarizes GAOńˇ╗s work from April 2003 through Feb. 2014 in the following areas: (1) finances; (2) premium rate setting; (3) community and property owner participation; (4) flood mapping; (5) flood mitigation; (6) administration and oversight; and (7) information management. It also discuss program changes required by the Biggert-Waters Act and the 2014 Act. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
