Forms Form Description
Elevation Certificate

The Elevation Certificate is an important administrative tool of the NFIP.  It is to be used to provide the 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).

The Elevation Certificate is required to properly rate post-FIRM buildings, which are buildings constructed after publication of the FIRM, located in flood insurance Zones A1-A30, AE, AH, A (with Base [1 percent annual chance] Flood Elevation [BFE]), VE, V1-V30, V (with BFE), AR, AR/A, AR/AE, AR/A1-A30, AR/AH, and AR/AO.  The Elevation Certificate is not required for pre-FIRM buildings unless the building is being rated under the optional post-FIRM flood insurance rules.

Flood proofing Certificate (FEMA Form 81-65) The floodproofing of non-residential buildings may be permitted as an alternative to elevating to or above the Base Flood Elevation; however, a floodproofing design certification is required.
MT-EZ Form Application Form for Single Residential Lot or Structure Amendments to National Flood Insurance Program Maps
(Condensed Version of the MT-1 Form)

This form should be used to request that FEMA remove a single structure or a legally recorded parcel of land or portions thereof, described by metes and bounds certified by a Registered Professional Engineer or Licensed Land Surveyor, from a designated Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA), an area that would be inundated by the flood having a 1-percent-annual-chance of being equaled or exceeded in any given year (base flood), via Letter of Map Amendment (LOMA). A LOMA is a letter from FEMA stating that an existing structure or parcel of land that has not been elevated by fill (i.e. the existing structure or parcel of land is on natural grade) would not be inundated by the base flood. Fill is defined as material placed to raise the ground to or above the Base Flood Elevation.
MT-1 Form

Application Forms for Conditional and Final Letters of Map Amendment and Letters of Map Revision Based on Fill
(For all LOMA, CLOMA, LOMR-F, and CLOMR-F Requests)
This form should be used to assist requesters (community officials, individual property owners, and others) in gathering the information that FEMA needs to determine whether property (i.e., structure(s), parcel(s) of land) is likely to be flooded during the flood event that has a 1-percent chance of being equaled or exceeded in any given year (base, or 100-year, flood).  Lands that are at risk of being inundated by the base flood are called Special Flood Hazard Areas, or SFHAs.

The forms in this package may be used for property that has been inadvertently included in a V zone or the regulatory floodway. However, if the property is to be removed from a V zone, it must not be located seaward of the landward toe of the primary frontal dune.

MT-2 Form Application Forms for Conditional Letters of Map Revision and Letters of Map Revision
(For all LOMR, CLOMR, and PMR Requests)
This form should be used for revisions to effective FIS reports, FIRMs, or FBFMs by individual and community requesters.  These forms will provide FEMA with assurance that all pertinent data relating to the revision are included in the submittal.  They also will ensure that:  (a) the data and methodology are based on current conditions; (b) qualified professionals have assembled data and performed all necessary computations; and (c) all individuals and organizations affected by proposed changes are aware of the changes and will have an opportunity to comment on them.
Standard Flood Hazard Determination Form

FEMA Form 81-93, Standard Flood Hazard Determination Form (SFHDF), which expired on October 31, 2008 has been replaced by FEMA Form 81-93, Standard Flood Hazard Determination Form (SFHDF) with a December 31, 2011 expiration date.
