Severe Repetitive Loss Program

To assist States and local governments in supporting actions that reduce or eliminate the long-term risk of flood damage to residential properties insured under the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) that meet the definition of severe repetitive loss property, and to reduce losses to the National
Flood Insurance Fund (NFIF) by funding projects that result in the greatest savings to the NFIF in the shortest time period.

This grant program supports the Mitigate component of the Presidential Preparedness Directive 8 (PPD-8) in the following ways: by providing funding to states and communities that promotes Long-Term Vulnerability Reduction by elevating at-risk homes or removing structures from flood hazard areas.

Overall, this program also supports Community Resilience by reducing the need for emergency services in flood-prone areas of the community.
