Is there an easy way to tell if my property qualifies for a LOMA?

Yes. If you have a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Elevation Certificate for your building, there’s an easy way to tell if your building qualifies for a LOMA. Much older and some very new Elevation Certificates may have this information in different blocks. View the following to see how the building qualifies:

  • If this measurement is 6.0 or higher, your building qualifies.
  • In Section B, Block "B9" for "Base Flood Elevation" should say "6"
  • In Section C, the measurement on Line "C2f" for "Lowest Adjacent Grade"
