  • On July 6, 2012 Congress passed the Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act (Biggert-Waters).

  • In June 2015, the financial institution regulatory agencies released final rules implementing most of the provisions of both of the above laws.
  • In January 2019 the financial institution regulatory agencies published final rules implementing the requirements for the mandatory purchase of private flood insurance.
  • On June 26, 2020, the Federal Reserve Board, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, and the National Credit Union Administration released proposed new and revised Interagency Questions and Answers Regarding Flood Insurance (FAQs).
