Special Flood Hazard Areas

Special Flood Hazard Areas “SFHA” are land areas which could be covered by floodwaters of the base flood. The NFIP floodplain management regulations must be enforced and where the mandatory purchase of flood insurance applies for federally backed mortgages. The requirement also extends to private mortgage companies backed by the FDIC or other federal agencies.  Therefore, many private mortgage companies also require flood insurance on properties in the SFHA.
