Elevation Certificates

The elevation certificate is an important administrative tool for the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) and an important risk management tool for property owners with buildings currently classified within FEMA designated Special Flood Hazard Areas (SFHA). It provides information on elevation, building type, flood map location, and additional information used to determine the proper flood insurance premium rates.  It is also used to support a request for a Letter Of Map Amendment (LOMA) or Letter Of Map Revision (LOMR), and to ensure compliance with community floodplain management ordinances.
