What is the Community Rating System?

The Community Rating System (CRS) is an incentive program that encourages community floodplain management activities that exceed the minimum National Flood Insurance Program’s (NFIP) requirements. 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) reduce flood losses; (2) facilitate accurate insurance rating; and (3) promote the awareness of flood insurance.
