Source: NFIP WYO Company Bulletins

" FEMA is pleased to announce the release of its SFIP Commentary. The SFIP Commentary complements the NFIP Claims Manual (June 2023) by helping claims professionals quickly find current NFIP guidance relevant to key provisions and concepts contained within the Standard Flood Insurance Policy. The Commentary primarily refers to the Dwelling Form but highlights points of difference with the General Property and Residential Condominium Building Association Policy (RCBAP) as applicable."  source Bulletin W-23008a

"Overview:  The SFIP Commentary is a quick reference document for claims professionals to find current NFIP guidance relevant to key provisions and concepts contained within the Standard Flood Insurance Policy. The Commentary primarily refers to the October 2021 Dwelling Form, but highlights points of difference with the General Property and Residential Condominium Building Association Policy (RCBAP) as applicable. References in the Commentary are to the October 2022 Flood Insurance Manual and June 2023 Claims Manual. When viewing this digitally as a PDF, FEMA recommends viewing the document as a two-up continuous view (with cover page) in your PDF reader"

Flood Adjuster Capacity Program Manual

This manual has publish date of July 2019, here is a summary from the manual.

"FEMA is dedicated to increasing the nation’s disaster resiliency. To this end, FEMA’s NFIP is working hard to increase the number of households and businesses that are protected by flood insurance. As the flood insurance policy count grows, FEMA will need to maintain a high level of customer satisfaction throughout the claims process. To make this possible, FEMA has initiated the Flood Adjuster Capacity Program (FACP) and is partnering with WYO Companies, independent adjusting firms, and individual adjusters to increase the number of claims adjusters who are trained and available to help NFIP policyholders after flood events. The FACP will work to strengthen and enhance recruitment, training and professional development for claims adjusters nationwide."
