The NFIP Has Been Extended
After a three-day government shut-down which included a three day NFIP lapse, Congress has come to an agreement and funded the Federal Government. The short-term extension will fund the government through February 8.
This includes the extension of the NFIP. However, as we have mentioned in past updates, this will once again be short term and will require our vigilance for the next two and a half weeks.
There is no word yet on whether the NFIP will be made effective to be retroactive for the three days it has lapsed. We will continue to monitor the situation. Please email us for more detailed questions.
