Description

CRS Workshop

Sponsored by Utah DEM Floodplain Program and FEMA May 10, 2018

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 5-45% to reflect the reduced flood risk resulting from the community actions meeting the three goals of the CRS:

  1. Reduce flood damage to insurable property;

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

  3. Encourage a comprehensive approach to floodplain management.

We will go over the checklist for joining the CRS while going through the subject matter.
