1316 Property Declarations and Rescissions

Section 1316 of the National Flood Insurance Act of 1968, as amended, states that no new flood insurance coverage shall be provided for any property that FEMA finds has been declared by a duly constituted state or local zoning authority or other authorized public body to be in violation of state or local laws, regulations, or ordinances that are intended to discourage or otherwise restrict land development or occupancy in floodprone areas. Insurance availability is restored once the violation is corrected and the 1316 Declaration has been rescinded by FEMA.
