CALL FOR ACTION -- Renew the National Flood Insurance Program
 

NAR has issued a Call for Action to encourage Congress to reauthorize the extension of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), which is scheduled to expire (again!) on July 31, 2018. Without reauthorization, NFIP cannot issue or renew flood insurance policies, including areas around the Roanoke region. 

We have seen and experienced the devastation of flooding in our area recently. This is an important issue for our area that will affect many sellers, buyers and property owners if the NFIP is not reauthorized.

Click here to take action now! Tell Congress to reauthorize the National Flood Insurance Program before it expires on July 31st. Please respond to this NAR Call For Action now!
