Elevation Certificates & the Community Rating Systems: What to Know & Expect

Communities participating in the Community Rating System (CRS) are subject to higher standards of review and regulation in order to receive discounts on flood insurance premiums paid into the NFIP. The 2013 CRS Coordinator’s manual changed Elevation Certificate (EC) requirements considerably for CRS communities. As a result, communities and surveyors should pay special attention to ensure completed ECs comply with the new requirements. This workshop will provide an opportunity to see and discuss what is required of CRS participating communities on the Finished Construction EC.

Christina Groves, CFM works with communities in FEMA Regions 4, 5, 6 and 7 to join, maintain and improve their participation in the Community Rating System.  Specifically working with communities in the States of Arkansas, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Missouri, Nebraska and Tennessee to improve their commitment to a sound floodplain management program through participation in the CRS.
