New Program Offers Savings to Bloomsburg Homeowners in Floodplain, Millard Says
BLOOMSBURG – Bloomsburg homeowners who live in the 100-year floodplain may now see savings for Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Elevation Certificates often required for flood insurance, thanks to an effort spearheaded by Rep. David Millard (R-Berwick) and coordinated by SEDA-Council of Governments (SEDA-COG).

There is no income limit to apply and receive a discounted rate of $450 per FEMA Elevation Certificate. Rates otherwise may vary from $600 to $900.

These certificates often are required by insurance companies in order to issue flood coverage for high-risk structures. The insurer uses them to determine flood insurance premiums based on individual risk. The certificate shows the location of the building, the lowest floor elevation, building characteristics and flood zone.

“Homeowners living in floodplains need relief and I am pleased that we are now able to offer this much-needed assistance to Bloomsburg homeowners,” said Millard.

Homeowners residing in the town of Bloomsburg who would like this service should apply to SEDA-COG, whose staff manages the funds and coordinates the inspection survey to be performed by Coukart and Associates Inc.

Forms to obtain this service will be available in Millard’s Bloomsburg office, located at 1000 Market St., Suite 39, Bloomsburg; the Bloomsburg Town Hall, located at, 301 E. 2nd St.; or at SEDA-COG, located at 201 Furnace Road, Lewisburg.

For more information, contact SEDA-COG’s Teri Provost or Bill Seigel at 570-524-4491.
