About The Coalition

The Coalition for Sustainable Flood Insurance (CSFI) works to ensure that flood insurance offered through the National Flood Insurance Program is both affordable and sustainable. We advocate for reforms that will enhance mitigation, improve how we assess and communicate risk, preserve affordability, and increase participation.

MITIGATION

Mitigation is the ultimate solution to reducing exposure to both property owners and the taxpayer. CSFI supports providing greater resources for mitigation, for both communities and property owners.

MAPPING

In order for communities and homeowners to adequately prepare for risk, we need to do a better job of assessing and communicating it. CSFI supports utilizing the best technology and methods available to improve the mapping process.

AFFORDABILITY

Preserving affordable flood insurance is a cornerstone of CSFI’s work. 98.5% of NFIP policies are in counties where the median income is below $100,000, and 62% of policies are in counties where the median income is below the national average ($53,889).

PROGRAM PARTICIPATION

Floods are happening with both increased frequency and severity, and in both coastal and inland areas. CSFI supports increasing the number of people purchasing flood insurance , which will make the program more solvent and help communities recover more quickly following a flood.
