Community Flood Rating and New Flood Maps
The Town of Kiawah Island is a part of the National Flood Insurance Program and Community Rating System which is a voluntary incentive program that recognizes and encourages community floodplain management activities that exceed the minimum program requirements. Kiawah has a class 5 rating, and residents should qualify for a 25% discount on their rates. Contact your insurance provider for specific details.
New Flood Maps
The Town’s new flood maps will become effective on January 29, 2021. The new maps impact the requirement and cost of flood insurance for some residents and affect base flood elevation requirements on new construction. If you have questions, contact Bruce Spicher at firstname.lastname@example.org.
