    FEMA Region VII, ISO, Nebraska Department of Natural Resources, Iowa Department of Natural Resources, IFSMA, and NeFSMA are please to offer a FREE course about the Community Rating System (CRS), a nationwide initiative of FEMA’s National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). It describes activities eligible for credit under the CRS, how a community applies, and how a community modifies an application to improve its classification.

    Please note: All participants must have an understanding of the NFIP and floodplain management principles. The course material will be difficult to follow without a participant being well-versed in basic concepts of floodplain management. It is suggested that participants be a Certified Floodplain Manager (CFM), or have completed the E273: Managing Floodplain Development Through the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) course, or be a Floodplain Administrator with more than 2 years of floodplain management experience.

    Contact Amanda Gowans, CFM at to register.
