Ready & Resilient: FEMA’s Risk Rating 2.0 Flood Insurance

Do you know how the new FEMA Risk Rating 2.0 flood insurance system impacts your property? Experts from FEMA will be joining us to give you the details about the pricing methodology behind the new program and what it means for your flood insurance rates.

As Louisiana enters the height of hurricane season, the Jefferson Parish Economic Development Commission (JEDCO) wants business owners and residents to be in the know about major policies and information that affect disaster recovery. As part of the Ready & Resilient webinar series, local, state, and federal experts will arm you with the tools and knowledge you need to receive proper support before and after a hurricane.

Purchasing flood insurance is the first line of defense against flood damage and a step toward a quicker recovery following a major storm event. Next Tuesday, August 30th, experts from FEMA will join us to answer your questions and talk to you about how you can best protect your home during storm season.

FEMA updated the National Flood Insurance Program’s (NFIP) risk rating methodology through the implementation of a new pricing methodology called Risk Rating 2.0. In a community prone to hurricanes and flood risk, the new Risk Rating 2.0 program will have an impact on homeowners and business owners alike. FEMA’s experts will provide more information about the program and how it will affect Jefferson Parish’s residents.
