Flood Management

Participating in NFIP or CRS


Each community must assess its flood hazard and determine whether flood insurance and floodplain management would benefit the community’s residents and businesses. California communities wanting to join the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) should contact their FEMA Planner or DWR Floodplain Management Specialist. For those communities interested in participating in the Community Rating System (CRS) Program, please contact your ISO representative.
