Starting on July 1, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp., Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, Federal Reserve, Farm Credit Administration, and National Credit Union Association will require the entities they supervise to accept certain types of private flood insurance policies and permit acceptance of others.
