House Elevation Massachuttas

House elevation is elevating a house by few feet above the legally authorised heights. This does not affect much on the overall look of the house, yet it can lead to significant reductions in flood insurance, significantly lower the chances of a house being destructed by storms and floods, and it can aslo help protect against sea level rise.

Advantages of Freeboard

The advantages of free board are:

  • It increases the protection from floods and storms as storm water often rise above the level shown on the Flood Insurance Rate Maps.
  • It helps a person prepare better for ongoing sea level rise. Massachusetts over the past 100 years have experienced a relative rise in sea level of about 1 foot.
  • It greatly reduces flood insurance premiums.

The federal Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) provides monetary assistance to state and local governments to enforce actions that will lower, minimize, or annhilate future risk to property from the effects of natural calamities. Individual homeowners cannot directly apply for funding but the local governments with a FEMA-approvedHazard Mitigation Planmay apply for them. The Town has acquired a Home Elevation Grant Program to help residents to apply for HMGP funding. Grants are utilised to raise a resident’s house above the Base Flood Elevation (BFE) in the 100-year floodplain.
