As of early Monday, nearly 10 percent of Illinois REALTORS® members have responded to a Call for Action urging Congress to renew the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).
NAR launched the Call for Action last week to urge lawmakers to pass a bill which would extend the program for another six years. NFIP is critical for the association’s membership because without the federally-backed program, flood insurance premiums would soar in communities nationwide.
Do your part by following directions outlined in REALTOR® Party mobile alerts, emails or by going to the REALTOR® Party webpage to send messages to policymakers. In previous Calls for Action, more than 20 percent of Illinois REALTORS®‘ membership has participated.
REALTORS® can also ask their congressional representatives to push for more accurate flood maps and better risk mitigation policies which would help keep rates affordable.
