Services | Elevation Certificate
Elevation certificates are forms issued by Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)
for clients to obtain flood insurance. The Elevation Certificate is an important
administrative tool of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). It is to be
used to provide elevation information necessary to ensure compliance with community
floodplain management ordinances, to determine the proper insurance premium rate,
and to support a request for a Letter of Map Amendment (LOMA) or Letter of Map Revision
based on fill (LOMR-F).
