Flood Insurance Promotion

In 2020 the MJPPI introduced a Flood Insurance Promotion activity.  As part of the program each town will host an annual meeting with the public to discuss

  • when flood insurance is required to be purchased

  • elevation certificates and how they impact flood insurance rates

  • How to review your insurance declaration page to make sure your property is being rated properly
