Severe Reptitive Loss (SRL) letters to property owners or communities
FEMA now has rules in place for implementing the SRL program that was authorized by Congress. While FEMA was going to send letters to all SRL properties informing them of the opportunity to access this program, something in the program precluded them from doing that.
Many states, especially those with SRL properties, are anxious to get information out so the process of mitigating those properties can get underway. The letter would point out the opportunity and potential consequences. Some states have sent letters out from the state offices, covering the needed information.
If your state is interested in sending a letter out regarding the SRL program, here is the link to letters sent from Illinois, Kentucky and Florida. You will note the Illinois letter was sent to all SRL property owners, whereas the KY an FL letters were sent to the communities with SRL properties.
We hope this information is useful to you in addressing the SRL properties in your state.
