WHAT THE PROGRAM DOES

If you own a home in one of NYC’s flood-prone neighborhoods, your flood insurance rates may already be on the rise. The Home Resiliency Audit Program brings together surveyors, engineers, master plumbers, and resiliency counselors to get you an accurate flood insurance quote as well as advise you on how to retrofit your home to keep insurance costs down. Depending on which flood zone you live in, you may qualify for additional free programs, such as a backwater valve installation.

WHAT YOU'LL GET
Resiliency Report

Resiliency Report

After we inspect your home and assess its flood risk, we’ll send you a detailed technical report, complete with measurements and information on which retrofits (i.e., raising your mechanical systems) can make you more flood-safe.

Elevation Certificate

Elevation Certificate

We’ll also send you a document that certifies your home’s elevation. If you live in a high-risk flood zone, the elevation certificate can keep your flood insurance rate from skyrocketing.
