National Flood Insurance Program Extension
Federal

On December 21, 2017, Congress extended the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) as part of the continuing resolution to keep the government open through January 19. NAR will continue working with Congress to ensure that the NFIP does not lapse while the Senate works on its version of the 5-year reauthorization and reform measure.

Tax Reform, What it Means
Federal

While NAR remains concerned that the overall structure of the final bill diminishes the tax benefits of homeownership and will cause adverse impacts in some markets, the advocacy of NAR members, as well as consumers, helped NAR to gain some important improvements throughout the legislative process. The final legislation will benefit many homeowners, homebuyers, real estate investors, and NAR members as a result.
