2017 Flood Insurance Information for Stamford
The City of Stamford participates in the Community Rating System, a voluntary program of the National Flood Insurance Program that documents the flood protection measures taken by a municipality and rewards it with a scaled discount on flood insurance rates. The City’s efforts have resulted in Stamford attaining a Level 7 rating, the highest in Connecticut, providing a 15% discount on flood insurance premiums. The discount resulted in $395,299 in savings this year for the community’s 2,696 policyholders. See more information here in this 2017 SNA flood insurance letter .
