• We were formed on January 14, 2013.  In response to the slow process of rebuilding after Superstorm SANDY.
  • As we saw this issue needed long term solutions, we filed for Non-Profit status in 2014.
  • We have been instrumental in letting our Senators and Congressman understand what the ramifications are of the Biggert-Waters Act.
  • We were instrumental in influencing many Senators and Congressman to pass the Homeowners Flood Insurance Affordability Act.
  • This bill is only a temporary measure. We are now gearing up for 2019 when the NFIP needs congressional re-authorization.
  • As legislation stands, over 1 million flood zone homes will see increases between 18% – 25% compounded annually.

Mission Statement

StopFemaNow was formed in January 2013 in response to drastic flood insurance premium hikes as a result of a confluence of the Biggert-Waters Act of 2012, inaccurate and incomplete FEMA flood maps, and questionable actuarial calculations.

We have/are engaging in the following activities to keep flood insurance affordable:

  • Advocating for the passage of the and Flood Insurance Reauthorization  and Reform Act.  This will cap increase to 9% and passing significant affordability measures.
  • Ensure rates reflect accurate risk
  • StopFemaNow is a non-profit organization working nationally to keep flood insurance affordable. For more information please contact  us at StopFemaNow@gmail.com .
  • Working with FEMA to draw accurate maps that account for all flood mitigation features.
  • Working with Congressmen and Senators to write new legislation for a permanent solution to Keep Flood Insurance Affordable.
  • Suggest reforms to NFIP’s management
  • Our goal is to reach all 22,000 flood zone communities, 5.5 current flood policy holders, nationally and speak as one unified voice to congress.
