Cover photo for the document: CRS Credit for Higher Regulatory Standards
Activity 430 (Higher Regulatory Standards) is the primary CRS activity for crediting floodplain development regulations that are more restrictive than the NFIP requirements. The basic credit criteria are explained in the Coordinator’s Manual. This publication expands on those explanations and provides examples of credited regulatory language and guidance on how to calculate the credit points for Activity 430. The section numbering for this publication matches the system used in the CRS Application and the Coordinator’s Manual.
