New Federal Flood Maps May Save You Money!

The Federal Government has recently released new Flood Insurance Rate Maps for Broward County. The maps illustrate flood hazards, and are used by insurance companies to determine rates for flood insurance policies. An overwhelming majority of homes in Broward County have been removed from the flood maps, including nearly 75 percent of the homes in district 5. This means flood insurance may soon cost you less. You have the ability to check on your home’s status by visiting and reading the brief explanation before clicking on Search Interactive Map at the bottom of the page.

County staff will be holding a number of public open houses where property owners, realtors, lenders, insurance agents and other interested parties will have the opportunity to view the maps and ask questions about flood insurance. If you have any questions about the flood maps, I encourage you to stop by one of these informational meetings.
