Small Communities in the Community Rating System

Cover photo for the document: Small Communities in the Community Rating System

The Community Rating System (CRS) of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) was implemented in 1990 as a voluntary program to encourage communities to adopt and implement floodplain management activities that exceed the minimum NFIP standards. If your community is considering joining the CRS, your focus should be just that--on  the activities your community is currently implementing that go beyond the minimum requirements of the NFIP. This advice applies both to small communities or those with few flood insurance policies as well as to large ones.
