Application Letter of Interest & CRS Quick Check

The objective of the Community Rating System (CRS) is to reward communities that are doing more than meeting the minimum NFIP requirements to help their citizens prevent or reduce flood losses. To begin the application process for a CRS classification, communities must submit a letter of interest to their FEMA Regional Office and document that they are implementing floodplain management activities that warrant at least 500 CRS credit points. The CRS Application Letter of Interest and CRS Quick Check document provide communities with a sample letter of interest and the “CRS Quick Check” tool for documenting their current activities and calculating their possible credit points. Instructions are provided within the document.
