A Few Words About the Coalition for Sustainable Flood Insurance

The Coalition for Sustainable Flood Insurance

Since April 2013, GNO, Inc. has led the Coalition for Sustainable Flood Insurance (CSFI), a national coalition of approximately 250 organizations across 35 states, formed during the implementation of the Biggert-Waters Act. CSFI was a driving force behind the passage of the Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act (HFIAA), compromise legislation that was cosponsored by more than 235 Members of the House and supported by 306 Members, representing the overwhelming support of both caucuses, and passed the Senate with the support of 72 Senators. Since the passage of HFIAA, our coalition has focused on advocating for a stronger policy framework for the NFIP. There are four primary policy areas CSFI has focused on that will provide for this stronger framework – mitigation, mapping, affordability, and program participation.

CSFI is an initiative of Greater New Orleans, Inc.  For more information, please contact Ileana Ledet, GNO, Inc.’s VP of Policy, at iledet@gnoinc.org or 504.527.6951.
