We need your help NOW MORE THAN EVER to continue our efforts.
The recent trip to Washington, D.C. was a large drain on our volunteer and financial resources.
We recently applied significant pressure on FEMA and lobbied our congressional officials. Now is not the time to slow down, but to ramp up pressure.

We are an advocate for all homeowners who have flood insurance around the country. Fighting for Affordable flood insurance Premiums, Fixing the flawed flood maps, Holding FEMA accountable to pay our fair claims amongst other FEMA issues. The National Flood Insurance Program needs congressional approval in 2017. That is when we need to make a stand to make PERMANENT reforms to the NFIP and FEMA to “Keep Flood Insurance Affordable” and fix the Fraud that is rampant at FEMA.
We would also like to Thank Some of Our Partners and Sponsors –
