|NFIP expected to be extended to September 30th, 2023|
|Last week, Congress passed a one-week continuing resolution avoiding a government shutdown and a lapse of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) until December 23rd. This allowed Congress to work on a funding bill by December 23rd that will extend government spending, and the NFIP, to September 30th 2023.As of today, there has been a slowdown in the progress of the bill, but there is optimism that a spending bill will pass by December 23rd at midnight to prevent a lapse in the NFIP.
Should the bill not pass, the MCC will send updates that the NFIP has lapsed.
