Risk Rating 2.0 is a methodology introduced by the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) to assess flood risk and accurately determine insurance premiums. This updated system incorporates various factors such as property-specific characteristics, flood frequency, distance to water sources, and potential mitigation efforts. By leveraging advanced technology and data analytics, Risk Rating 2.0 aims to provide policyholders with fairer and more transparent flood insurance rates reflective of their actual risk exposure.
Under this new system, the Flood Insurance Rate Maps won't be used to determine policy rates. The flood maps will still be used to:
By communities to ensure construction compliance standards.
By lenders to know if mandatory flood insurance coverage rules apply.
