FEMA floodplain/ permit services

FEMA’s designated floodplains were developed for insurance agencies. Let us help you understand what they mean for you and get the necessary approvals needed to perform the work you want.

Who We serve

Property Owners

Correct Mapping Errors

If your property was inadvertently mapped in a flood zone and think it should be removed resulting in lower flood insurance premiums, NRP will work with you and coordinate with your local Floodplain Administrator to identify the errors and make the necessary corrections. 


Reducing Flood Risk

If you want to reduce your risk of flooding and pay lower flood insurance premiums by raising the elevation of your home, We will work with you and coordinate with your local Floodplain Administrator to identify the target elevation and complete the necessary forms.

Developers

Development within the Floodzone

If you are looking to create a commercial or residential development within a flood zone and/or floodway, NRP will work with you to create the most cost-effective plan and coordinate with your local Floodplain Administrator and FEMA to get it approved.

Types of letter of map revisions

Letter of Map Revision (LOMR)

This revision is used to make changes to flood risk zones, floodplain and/or floodway delineations, flood elevations, and/or planimetric features in small areas such as new developments or drainage improvement.  

Letter of Map Revision Based on Fill (LOMR-F)

This revision is used to request a change in the flood zone designation for the property based on placement of fill to elevate the property.  

Letter of Map Amendment (LOMA)

This revision is used to request a change in the flood zone designation for the property based on its existing elevation.  

Conditional Letter of Map Revision (CLOMA)

This revision is used to indicate whether a proposed project’s changes to the hydrologic or hydraulic characteristics of a flooding source would result in the modification of the existing regulatory floodway, the effective Base Flood Elevations (BFEs), or the Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA) would be recognized by FEMA.
