To apply for a Letter of Map Amendment/Letter of Map Revision Based on Fill, an official FEMA determination regarding whether a property or structure is located within a Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA).
This web-based application offers many advantages over the traditional paper-based request process: applicants may save information online and finish applying at their convenience, it eliminates mailing time associated with paper-based submissions by routing all correspondence via e-mail, and requestors can check their application status in real-time by logging into their account. Once you have initially registered to use the service, please select Create Amendment Application to begin. A tutorial is provided at Online LOMC Tutorial for Amendments to assist you with submitting your application.
Please note that typically the following supporting materials must be uploaded to your application:
- A recorded plat map OR recorded property deed accompanied by a tax parcel map.
- Elevation information, provided on either the Elevation Form or an Elevation Certificate, must be included for all requests, except those in which the structure is clearly outside of the SFHA as shown on the Flood Insurance Rate Map. If you are unsure as to whether your structure is located within the SFHA, you may view your map online at the FEMA Flood Map Service Center.
- For properties elevated by fill, a signed Community Acknowledgement Form is required.
Links to the required forms will be provided within the application.
If additional assistance is sought, the applicant may contact FEMA by telephone, toll-free, at (877) 336-2627 or by chat at http://www.floodmaps.fema.gov/fhm/fmx_main.html.
