The 2017 CRS Coordinator’s Manual (Expiration date March 31, 2020) has been approved in accordance with requirements of the Paperwork Reduction Act. The Manual is available for download at www.FEMA.gov by searching for CRS Coordinators Manual in the search box and at www.CRSresources.org/manual. The 2017 CRS Coordinator’s Manual will be implemented by FEMA immediately. As always, changes will not take effect for any community until that community’s next 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 2017 Coordinator’s Manual. Most changes are clarification and improvements. The changes have been presented in issues of NFIP/CRS Update newsletters, beginning with the September/October 2016 issue. Back issues are available atwww.fema.gov/national-flood-insurance-program-community-rating-system.
The CRS Webinars series for 2017 will include training courses on the new items in the 2017 CRS Coordinator’s Manual and other topics to assist communities. Visit www.CRSresources.org/training to see webinar dates and to register.
CRSresources.org will also have the community certification forms and other resources that pertain to the 2017 Coordinator’s Manual. Other resources are being updated.
