You may be spending hundreds of dollars more per year on flood insurance than you need to. The Portland Housing Bureau, in partnership with Enhabit, is helping homeowners in Lents and Powellhurst-Gilbert neighborhoods (located in Johnson Creek’s 100-year floodplain) reduce flood insurance costs.

How it Works

  • You must apply to find out If your home qualifies. You must own your home, and your household income, your insurance, the home’s exact location and other factors will determine eligibility. Qualified households will get a free assessment and Elevation Certificate (worth $1,200) to help save money on flood insurance. An Elevation Certificate details information about your home’s risk for flooding. The Elevation Certificate is then used to determine accurate flood risks, and can result in lower flood insurance rates. To see if your property already has an elevation certificate, check your address on this map.
  • When you participate, you also get a no-cost home assessment to identify improvements to reduce flooding impacts, and other repairs to improve the general health and safety of your home.
  • Together, these services, offered at no cost by the City of Portland, are valued at $1,500, and could save you hundreds of dollars in flood insurance costs over the next few years.
