CRS (Community Ratings System)

The Community Rating System (CRS) is a voluntary program of the National Flood Insurance Program.  Through the CRS, communities that are undertaking floodplain management activities that exceed the minimum floodplain management requirements of the NFIP earn reductions in the flood insurance premiums of their residents resulting in more affordable flood insurance.  Pompton Lakes is a participating community and undertakes floodplain management activities.

But more than this, by applying a whole community approach to floodplain management, the CRS contributes to community resilience, increased insurance coverage, public safety and the protection of floodplain natural functions.  These benefits are evident in participating communities and collectively nationwide.
