The North Central Pennsylvania Regional Planning and Development Commission has received grant funding from the Keystone Communities Program (KCP) to place a value on resiliency in North Central’s six-county region. The goal is to raise awareness and educate residents on the short and long term impacts of the Flood Insurance Reform.   A regional analysis of historic flooding impacts was conducted with a “pilot” community identified.

FEMA Elevation Certificate Program

Property owners are continually facing annual premium rate increases unless elevation data, supplied on an Elevation Certificate (EC), indicates that the structure does not necessitate a full risk premium. North Central has contracted with D.E.M. Surveying to provide FEMA Elevation Certificates at a discounted rate for properties located in the 100-year floodplain (Zone AE) in Ridgway Borough, Elk County, PA.

For questions concerning eligibility, or to request a form be sent to you, please contact  Rachel Wolfel  at 814-773-3162. To order a discounted Elevation Certificate please download the form below and mail to North Central.
