Coverage made available to residents of a community on a subsidized and nonsubsidized premium rate basis once the governing body of the community qualifies that community for coverage under the National Flood Insurance Act. Residents include business and nonbusiness operations with coverage written on structures and their contents. Coverage is purchased through licensed agents. Prior to passage of the Housing and Urban Development Act of 1968, of which the National Flood Insurance Act is a part, it was virtually impossible to obtain flood insurance coverage on an industrial building, residential building, retailing building, or a single family dwelling.
