Flood insurance is important for renters and property owners. Because insurance can be complicated and contains technical jargon, Clive's Community Development staff is available to assist with your flood insurance questions. FEMA created a booklet in easy to understand language for anyone needing a basic understanding of NFIP. It contains a section of frequently asked questions and is called Answers to Questions about the National Flood Insurance program.
Flood Insurance Studies were conducted to investigate the existence and severity of flood hazards in the City of Clive. Read them here: FIS - 1992
The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) aims to reduce the impact of flooding on private and public structures by providing affordable insurance. Click here to learn more at FloodSmart.gov
FIRM. A Flood Insurance Rate Map, called a FIRM, shows the areas in Clive that have a 1% or greater chance of flooding in any given year. Such an area is called a Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA). Because the current FIRMs were adopted in 1992, Clive's FIRMs are being updated as of March 2016. To view the Preliminary FIRMs, please use the links below.
If there is an error, you can file a comment or appeal for the preliminary maps. Amendments can be made to the adopted 1992 maps if you believe that your property is not located in the SFHA by following directions here: LOMC
