Updating the maps will protect environmentally sensitive wetlands and coastal areas. It’ll also move housing communities out of the protection area, allowing those homeowners to purchase federal flood insurance. This legislation benefits both homeowners and the environment.
Moving housing communities currently in the CBRA protection area out and making those homeowners eligible to purchase federal flood protection will likely increase payouts from the federal flood insurance program, as these homes are in flood-prone areas.
