Flood Hazard Determination Notices

National Flood Insurance Program regulations require the publication of public notices each time FEMA proposes new or modified flood hazard information, including the addition/modification of Base Flood Elevations (BFEs), base flood depths, Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA) boundaries and zone designations or regulatory floodways. These notices are published to start the statutorily required appeal periods for the affected communities. 

If your LOMR is currently in a public appeal period, you can check the status and view determination documents, you can view Flood Hazard Determination Notices in the Federal Register or view Proposed Flood Hazard Determination Notices.

Letter Of Final Determination Lists

A Letter of Final Determination (LFD) is sent to a community stating that a new FIRM will become effective in six months and each participating flood prone community must adopt a new or updated compliant floodplain management ordinance by that effective date or demonstrate that it has a valid automatic adoption clause.

The LFD list is a consolidated list of all LFDs distributed to communities for a specific FIRM effective date. It is prepared biweekly on predetermined LFD dates.
