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.
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 .

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.
