L0278: National Flood Insurance  
Program/Community Rating System 

A FREE course about the Community Rating System (CRS), a nationwide initiative of FEMA’s National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). It describes activities eligible for credit under the CRS, how a community applies, and how a community modifies an application to improve its classification.  


1. Describe how to join the CRS program and improve community CRS classifications.  
2. Identify ways to earn CRS points by reducing and avoiding flood damage to insurable property.  
3. Understand how to take full advantage of available CRS points as you strengthen and support the insurance aspects of the NFIP.  
4. Describe how to gain CRS points by fostering comprehensive floodplain management.  
Please note: All participants must have an understanding of the NFIP and floodplain management principles. The course material will be difficult to follow without a participant being well-versed in basic concepts of floodplain management. It is suggested that participants be a Certified Floodplain Manager (CFM), or have completed the E273: Managing Floodplain Development Through the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) course, or be a Floodplain Administrator with more than 2 years of floodplain management experience. 
Presented by: FEMA Region VII, ISO, Nebraska Department of Natural Resources, Iowa Department of Natural Resources, IFSMA, and NeFSMA.
