Extension of the Grace Period for NFIP Premiums Due to COVID-19 Pandemic
To avoid a lapse in coverage, there is typically a 30-day grace period to renew policies. However, due to the widespread economic disruption arising from the COVID-19 pandemic, FEMA recognizes that flood insurance policyholders may not meet the standard policy renewal deadline.
To help serve its National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) customers who may be experiencing financial hardships, the agency is extending the grace period to renew flood insurance policies from 30 to 120 days. This extension applies to NFIP flood insurance policies with an expiration date between February 13-June 15, 2020.

The Planning Department is responsible for the management of various land use programs within the unincorporated areas of Denton County. This includes the federally mandated National Flood Insurance Program including permitting, water quality and quantity and program compliance, the Denton County Subdivision Rules and Regulations and developers compliance with County regulations, and the Lake Ray Roberts Land Use Ordinance enforcement and its zoning cases. We are continually working to improve development of our database framework to tie together all parts of Planning & Engineering for real time distribution of Development Permits, Storm Water Permits, Subdivisions and Real Property, and Lake Ray Roberts Zoning issues on the Landmark Internet Mapping Site. Existing databases are critical and are a high priority to this department, other County departments and the public. Future development of the Web based data will include all permits and inspections to better serve the Public and other County offices.
