What is CRS?

CRS stands for Community Rating System which is a Federal Emergency Management Agency program where flood insurance premiums are adjusted in recognition of community activities above and beyond those required by the National Flood Insurance Program. Planning and Zoning continue to play a major role in Hamden's flood damage prevention activities. This results in a 5% reduction in flood insurance premiums for Hamden residents.
