NFIP Elevation Certificate
The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) Elevation Certificate (EC) is an administrative tool used to provide elevation information necessary to ensure compliance with community floodplain management ordinances, to determine the proper insurance premium rate, or support a request for a Letter of Map Amendment (LOMA).

The State of Idaho does not maintain a database of completed Elevation Certificates and does not have copies of completed Elevation Certificates for individual properties located throughout the state. These documents are maintained by the Floodplain Administrator in the county or city where the property is located.
To obtain a copy of an Elevation Certificate for a specific property, contact the local Community Floodplain Administrator.
