Through Monday, 13 local associations had more than 20 percent of their members respond to the National Association of REALTORS® Call for Action. To date, 14.6 percent of Illinois members have responded.

The local associations are:

  • Capital Area REALTORS®
  • Decatur Association of REALTORS®
  • Heartland REALTOR® Organization
  • Illini Valley Association of REALTORS®
  • Logan County Board of REALTORS®
  • Mid Valley Association of REALTORS®
  • Oak Park Association of REALTORS®
  • Peoria Area Association of REALTORS®
  • Quad Cities Association of REALTORS® Inc.
  • Quincy Association of REALTORS®, Inc.
  • REALTOR® Association of Northwestern IIllinois
  • Rockford Area Association of REALTORS®
  • Three Rivers 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.
