NFIP Risk Rating 2.0 Overview - September 14, 2022

FEMA is updating the National Flood Insurance Program's (NFIP) risk rating methodology with "Risk Rating 2.0." This new methodology will deliver insurance rates that are actuarily sound, equitable, easier to understand, and better reflect a property’s flood risk. RR2.0 incorporates more variables than the existing "legacy methodology." Join us to learn about these variables, how the updates will be rolled out, and how RR2.0 impacts floodplain management regulations.
