Community Rating System (CRS)
The National Flood Insurance Program's (NFIP's) Community Rating System (CRS) is a voluntary incentive program that recognizes communities for implementing floodplain management practices that exceed the Federal minimum requirements of the NFIP to provide protection from flooding. In exchange for a community's proactive efforts to reduce flood risk, policyholders can receive reduced flood insurance premiums for buildings in the community. The City of Venice is rated a Class 6 community, and our residents receive up to a 20% discount on flood insurance premiums. Public meetings are posted in local media and on the City of Venice website at https://venice.legistar.com/Departments.aspx
