SEDA-Council of Governments (SEDA-COG), in cooperation with Pennsylvania Representative David Millard, has negotiated a group price for engineering/survey services to complete and issue FEMA Elevation Certificates for inter-ested homeowners in the Town of Bloomsburg who reside within the 100-year floodplain (Zone AE). The cost is $450.00, prepaid to SEDA-COG. There are no income restrictions applied to this program.
The National Flood Insurance Program has gone through significant changes with the 2012 Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act and the 2014 Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act. These reforms mean that policy holders with subsidized pre-FIRM or grandfathered rates may see premium rate increases until FEMA deems that the flood insurance cost is based on the true flood risk to that property.
