FEMA CRS Accredited Community

The Village of Deerfield is a participating member of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). Anyone can purchase flood insurance through their local insurance agent via the NFIP. There is a 30 day waiting period for flood insurance coverage to begin. A property located within a Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA) has a 26% chance of being damaged by a flood over the life of a 30-year mortgage. Your homeowner’s insurance WILL NOT cover flood damages. This is why flood insurance is mandatory for all federally backed mortgages, when a property that is located within a Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA).  The Village of Deerfield participates in FEMA's "Community Rating System" which can further reduce flood insurance premiums.
