MT-1 Application Forms & Instructions

Main Content

Application Forms for Conditional Letters of Map Amendment (CLOMAs), Final Letters of Map Amendment (LOMAs), Letters of Map Revision Based on Fill (LOMR-Fs), and Conditional Letters of Map Revisions Based on Fill (CLOMR-Fs)

The application forms and instructions included in the MT-1 package were designed to assist requesters (community officials, individual property owners, and others) in gathering the information that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) needs to determine whether property (i.e., parcel[s] of land, structure[s]) is likely to be flooded during the flood event that has a 1-percent chance of being equaled or exceeded in any given year. The 1-percent-annual-chance flood is often referred to as the base, or 100-year flood. The area flooded by the 1-percent-annual-chance flood is called the Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA). The mandatory flood insurance purchase requirements of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) apply to insurable structures in the SFHA shown on an effective NFIP map.

applicants Please Note: Expired MT-EZ, MT-1, and MT-2 forms may be used until further notice. These forms will continue to be accepted when submitting for a Letter of Map Change (LOMC).

Endangered Species Act (ESA) Requirements

For Letter of Map Change Requests (LOMCs) involving floodplain activities that have already occurred, private individuals and local and state jurisdictions are required to comply with the ESA requirements independent of FEMA’s review. These as-built requests do not provide the same opportunity as Conditional LOMCs for FEMA to comment on the project because map changes are issued only after the physical action has occurred. You can view a table that provides a general summary of FEMA's ESA requirements.

Where to Send Requests, Including Review and Processing Fees, for LOMAs, CLOMAs, LOMR-Fs, and CLOMR-Fs

Please submit both the review and processing fee and the application package together to the following address:

LOMC Clearinghouse
847 South Pickett Street
Alexandria, VA 22304-4605

The FEMA Payment Information Form is to accompany requests for CLOMA, LOMR-F, and CLOMR-F requests when a review and processing fee is required. This form also is to be used by individuals submitting requests for technical and administrative support data from the FEMA library archive.
