Collection of Information

Title: Revisions to National Flood Insurance Program Maps: Application Forms and Instructions for (C)LOMAs and (C)LOMR-Fs.

Type of information collection: Revision of a currently approved information collection.

Form Titles and Numbers: FEMA Form 086-0-26, Property Information; FEMA Form 086-0-26A, Elevation Form; FEMA Form 086-0-26B, Community Acknowledgement Form; FEMA Form 086-0-22 and FEMA Form 086-0-22A (Spanish), Application Form for Single Residential Lot or Structure Amendments to National Flood Insurance Program Maps.

Abstract: FEMA collects scientific and technical data submissions to determine whether a specific, single-lot property is located within or outside of a Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA). If the property is determined not to be within a SFHA, FEMA provides a written determination and the appropriate map is modified by a Letter of Map Amendment (LOMA) or a Letter of Map Revision—Based on Fill (LOMR-F). The owner or lessee of a property uses a LOMA or LOMR-F to show that a property is not located within the SFHA, making it possible for the lending institution to waive the flood insurance requirement. If the policyholder decides to maintain insurance on the property, the new determination should result in lower rates.

Affected Public: Individuals and Households; and Business or Other for-Profit Institutes.

Estimated Number of Respondents: 97,503.

Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 150,725.

Estimated Cost: The property owner is required to hire a surveyor or engineer at an average cost of $450 to provide certified elevation data. Therefore the total annual cost burden to respondents is estimated to be $47,465,100.
