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 Endangered Species Act (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.

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.
