Homeowners Flood Insurance Affordability Act of 2014
The Homeowners Flood Insurance Affordability Act of 2014 or Grimm-Waters Act was passed by Congress and signed by President Obama in 2014. Effectively, the most recent action reformed parts of the Biggert-Waters Act of 2012 by repealing some provisions and adding some others.
The following links explain the Homeowners Flood Insurance Affordability Act (HFIAA) of 2014 in more detail.
Find more information about the Biggert Waters Insurance Reform Act under the General Information below.
Flood insurance rates and other charges will be revised for new or existing policies beginning on April 1, 2015. In addition to insurance rates, other changes resulting from Biggert-Waters and HFIAA will be implemented that will affect the total amount a policyholder pays for a flood insurance policy.
