The Federal Disaster Protection Act of 1973 requires flood insurance be purchased for any project located in a Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA), as designated by FEMA to be located in a 100-year or 500-year flood zone, as a condition of the owner receiving any type of direct or indirect federal funds to purchase and or mortgage the property. Federal funds typically include federally-insured mortgage programs such as Fannie Mae, FHA, VA and Rural Housing loans. FEMA Flood Elevation Certificates are also commonly required as part of permitting construction projects.
