2017 National Flood Insurance Program Community Rating System (CRS) Coordinator’s Manual Approved

The 2017 CRS Coordinator’s Manual (Expiration date March 31, 2020) has been approved in accordance with requirements of the Paperwork Reduction Act. The revised manual will be implemented by FEMA immediately. However, changes will not take effect for any community until that community’s next CRS cycle verification visit.

Changes from previous editions of the Coordinator’s Manual will be marked with vertical bars in the margins of the pages of the updated manual. Most changes are clarification and improvements.

The CRS Webinars series for 2017 will include training courses on the new items in the manual and other topics to assist communities. Visit http://crsresources.org/training/ to see webinar dates and to register.
