Nearly 11 percent of Illinois REALTORS® have answered NFIP Call for Action

Illinois REALTORS® have been busy urging members of Congress to re-authorize the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).

According to results Thursday afternoon, 11 percent of the association’s members had taken action by sending a message to their congressional representatives. Among local Illinois REALTOR® associations, several have surpassed 20 percent member participation in the Call for Action. They include:

  • The Oak Park Association of REALTORS®
  • Rockford REALTORS®
  • Peoria Area Association of REALTORS®
  • Quad Cities Association of REALTORS®

If the NFIP is allowed to expire on Sept. 30, 22,000 communities nationwide would be affected. In those communities flood insurance premiums could soar, making the cost of owning a home much more costly.
