San Francisco Floodplain Management Program
Category : Program or Division
The City and County of San Francisco is a participant in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). Under this program, which is managed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the Federal government makes flood insurance available at affordable rates in the City. Homeowners, renters, and businesses in areas of the City that are subject to flooding during abnormally severe winter rains, such as in District 9 and District 11, are eligible to purchase Federally subsidized flood insurance to protect their properties.
