Flood- Understanding the Basics Webinar


Civil money penalties continued to be assessed for violations of the Flood Disaster Protection Act (FDPA) even though the basic regulatory requirements have remained the same for a number of years. Bottom line, adequate flood insurance is required to be in place when a MIRE (Make, Increase, Renew, or Extent) event occurs and the structure securing the loan is in a special flood hazard area. And on top of that, if the borrowers drop their flood insurance your institution must force place in a timely manner.

The components of an effective flood compliance management program include timely ordering of the determination; action steps when collateral is in a special flood hazard area; fulfilling notice requirements; and evaluating flood policies. Join us as we discuss the requirements of the FDPA so that you can ensure there are no leaks in your institution’s flood compliance program!
