Based on the annual percentage increase in the CPI-W, the exemption threshold will increase for 2019.

The SCRA prohibits a landlord from evicting a Service member or the member's family from the rental property during a period of military service except by court order. The law requires the Department of Defense to adjust this amount annually to reflect inflation and to publish the new amount in the Federal Register.
Flood- The rule implements a portion of the Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act that defines “private flood insurance.” This is meant to provide borrowers with more flood insurance options – which also brings more compliance requirements.
