Whether you currently own a home or property, or are considering buying one, it is important to know whether it is within a designated flood prone area. Typically, properties that are require the purchase of flood insurance as a condition of obtaining a mortgage. This also reduces your financial exposure in the event of a flood.
The Chicago District can determine whether your home or property is within a designated flood prone area. We maintain an inventory of the latest flood plain maps produced by the Federal Emergency Management Agency. We will provide you a letter with our determination within 7 business days. There is no charge for this service.
Please fill out the form below, being careful to provide us with as exact a description of the assistance you require that you can in the "Comments" section, and send the form to ChicagoDistrict.PAO@usace.army.mil.
