Cover photo for the document: National Flood Insurance Program Elevation Certificate and Instructions

The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) Elevation Certificate (EC) is an administrative tool used by the NFIP.  It is used to provide elevation information necessary to ensure compliance with community floodplain management ordinances; to determine the proper insurance premium rate; and or support a request for a Letter of Map Amendment (LOMA) to remove a building from the Special Flood Hazard Area.

When completing Item B12 on the EC, for the most current and best available CBRS maps and boundary data, please go to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) CBRS Mapper. The FWS website also provides additional information regarding CBRA property determinations.
