After major storms like Katrina and Sandy, federal policies around flood insurance have changed dramatically. In New York City, this could mean not only a much larger flood zone, but much higher flood insurance costs for many homeowners. How does flood insurance work? Who needs to get it? How much will it cost? And how do you figure out which flood zone you’re in?
CUP collaborated with the Center for NYC Neighborhoods and designers Manuel Miranda Practice and Schema to create Weathering the Storm. This interactive digital tool breaks down flood insurance, how it’s changing, and what that means for NYC’s homeowners.
The Center for NYC Neighborhoods is using Weathering the Storm as part of their FloodHelpNY outreach initiative throughout New York State.
