National Flood Insurance Program Meeting
The City of Kemah is hosting a meeting to discuss the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) and the proposed changes to the City’s Floodplain Ordinance. Please join us at the Kemah Community Center located at 800 Harris Avenue on Monday, February 27, 2023 at 6:00 PM. The City of Kemah participates in the NFIP which was created by Congress in 1968 to protect lives and property and to reduce the financial burden of providing disaster assistance. The NFIP is administered by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Nationwide, over 22,000 communities participate in the NFIP-including many in Texas.
To learn more about the NFIP, including your potential flood risk and the approximate cost of a flood insurance policy, go to FEMA’s FloodSmart website at http://www.floodsmart.gov.
