    WASHINGTON, D.C. – September 30, 2013 – (RealEstateRama) — Today, a bipartisan group of Senators and House Members from New Jersey and New York urged FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate to grant a six-month extension for thousands of Sandy-impacted homeowners to file flood insurance claims. Under the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) managed by FEMA, Sandy-impacted homeowners must file a Proof of Loss (POL) form, a statement on the amount that the homeowner is claiming under his or her flood insurance policy, by October 29th in order to be eligible for coverage for flood damage.
