Substantial Damage Information - 
Substantial Damage = damage of 50% or greater of the amount of the structures assessed value taken from Tax Assessor’s office.  *** This can be totaled thru repetitive losses as well. ***  Substantial Damage determinations can be obtained by submitting qualified contractor’s estimates, an architect or engineer’s report to the Construction Office.
 
In order to obtain a Substantial Damage Letter from the Township of Little Egg Harbor you must supply a report from a licensed New Jersey: (a) engineer, (b) architect, or (c) contractor.  The Township's Zoning Officer cannot provide a substantial damage estimate.   
 
Increased Cost of Compliance (ICC) – that portion of your insurance that provides up to  $30,000 to elevate, relocate, or demolish your home.
 
You must get a Substantial Damage determination to file for ICC.  
When must I elevate my house?
 
Substantial Damage – If your home has been determined to be “Substantially Damaged” (more than 50%) you must build to the current codes and elevations.
 
Substantial Improvement – If your home was not “Substantially Damaged”, but you are taking the opportunity to make improvements, and these improvements bring you above the 50% of value mark, you are a “Substantial Improvement” and must build to current codes and elevations.
 
***  It is important to note that a “Substantial Damage” determination is required for ICC, however “Substantial Improvement” will not qualify you for the money.  ***
