The Community Rating System (CRS) is a nationwide initiative of FEMA’s National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). The CRS recognizes and encourages community floodplain management activities that exceed the minimum NFIP standards. Participation in CRS lowers flood insurance premium rates for policyholders within your community. CRS floodplain management activities enhance public safety, reduce damages to property and public infrastructure, avoid economic disruption and losses, reduce human suffering, and protect the environment. Participating in the CRS provides

  • Describe how to join the CRS program and improve community CRS classifications.
  • Identify ways to earn CRS points by reducing and avoiding flood damage to insurable property.
  • Understand how to take full advantage of available CRS points as you strengthen and support the insurance aspects of NFIP.
  • Describe how to gain CRS points by fostering comprehensive floodplain management.

Target Audience: Local officials (communities in CRS and communities interested in CRS), regional planning officials, NFIP state staff, and others interested in learning about the CRS in order to provide technical assistance to communities seeking to apply for CRS credit.

  • You must have 2 years of floodplain management experience or basic knowledge of the NFIP, OR
  • You must have completed the E/L 273, Managing Floodplain Development Through the National Flood Insurance Program, OR
  • You must be a Certified Floodplain Manager (CFM).
