NASCUS Seeks Members' Thoughs on Changes to the Flood Disaster Protection Act

October 21The National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), in conjunction with the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, the Federal Reserve System, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, and the Farm Credit Administration, has issued a notice of proposed rulemaking to implement changes to the Flood Disaster Protection Act (FDPA) required by the Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012 (Biggert-Waters).

If you have thoughts on this proposed rule you would like to share with NASCUS, please contact Sabrina Cotter ( or Brian Knight (
