FEMA elevation certificates contain elevation information needed by home/buildings insurance underwriters for estimating flood insurance premium rates for new buildings or substantially improved structures located in special flood hazard areas. Elevation certificates help communities document compliance to its floodplain management ordinance. FEMA elevation certificates are also used to support requests for letter of Map Amendment (LOMA) and letter of Map Revision base on fill (LOMR-F). The primary purpose of the FEMA/NFIP elevation certificate requirement is to help the community reduce losses caused by flooding events.
