COMMUNITY RATING SYSTEM (CRS)

 

The National Flood Insurance Program's (NFIP) Community Rating System (CRS) is a voluntary incentive program that recognizes and encourages community floodplain management activities that exceed the minimum NFIP requirements.

 

As a result, flood insurance premium rates are discounted to reflect the reduced flood risk resulting from the community actions meeting the three goals of the CRS:

 

  1. 1. Reduce flood damage to insurable property;

  2. 2. Strengthen and support the insurance aspects of the NFIP, and

  3. 3. Encourage a comprehensive approach to floodplain management.
