 NATIONAL FLOOD INSURANCE PROGRAM 

The Town of Lake Park participates in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), a Federal program administered by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) that enables property owners to purchase insurance protection against flooding losses.  Since Lake Park properly manages a Floodplain Ordinance, the Town’s home and business owners are eligible to participate in NFIP and are eligible for a discount on flood insurance. 

 

NFIP coverage is available to all owners of insurable property, including buildings and/or contents; owners and renters may insure their personal property; and builders of buildings in the course of construction, condominium associations, and owners of residential condominium units.  A policy may be purchased from any licensed property insurance agent or broker in good standing with the state or through any agent representing a Write Your Own (WYO) company.
