Get Flood Insurance

Terrebonne Parish participates in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), so flood insurance is available to everyone.

Important things to remember:

  • Homeowners insurance does NOT cover flooding.
  • Don't wait! There is a 30-day waiting period before a flood policy takes effect.
  • Standard flood policies do NOT cover contents - make sure your policy does.
  • If you live outside the Special Flood Hazard Area, you may be eligible for a Preferred Risk Policy at a lower cost.
