On July 1, 2006 Charlotte-Mecklenburg became the first local entity in the country to be given the authority to process Letters of Map Change (LOMCs) as part of a FEMA pilot program.  These LOMCs make conditional and permanent changes to our Flood Insurance Rate Maps, which are used for floodplain management activities such as rating flood insurance, regulating development, assessing existing flood risk, etc.


The requested actions are necessary to continue the program and associated funding into the thirteenth year, so that Charlotte-Mecklenburg Storm Water Services will be reimbursed by FEMA for the actual cost of processing LOMCs within Mecklenburg County, the City of Charlotte and all six towns.  The grant application window opened June 1, 2018, it closes July 2, 2018.  Grant Review Committee approval is in process. No county match is required for these funds.









Increase of up to $20,000 in non-county revenue and associated expenses in the Storm Water Grant Fund (G705)
