What is C-MAP and ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS

The Coastal Market Assistance Program (C-MAP) has been created to assist homeowners living in Connecticut coastal areas who have been unable to obtain insurance. C-MAP was created by the Insurance Companies that write homeowners insurance in Connecticut under the authorization of the Connecticut Insurance Department and is administered by the Connecticut FAIR Plan.

Applicants to C-MAP must go to a producer or agent to assist them in all insurance transactions.
