New FEMA Flood Insurance Rate Maps
Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has updated the Flood Insurance
Rate Maps (FIRM) for all the communities in New Haven
should be noted that properties that are currently not located within the
designated flood hazard zones have the ability to acquire flood insurance
based upon the current designation, and become “grandfathered” at this
lower rate if the new flood map places them into a flood hazard zone.
This could result in substantial future savings for homeowners.
