CRS Community Self Assessment Home

The CRS Community Self Assessment is a lightweight tool designed to help communities better understand their flood exposure and begin the process of deciding how they wish to reduce their risks. 

The entire self-assessment process is designed to take a community’s floodplain manager (or similar official) less than a day to complete. Some communities may be able to finish in a few hours. The five steps walk a community through a holistic look at its floodplain, identifying what hazards it faces in which areas, designating “assessment areas” where it wishes to focus its efforts, and the process of identifying ways to reduce its risks.

Please note that this is a SELF assessment for your community’s internal use: your answers will NOT be processed by FEMA. Your answers will be emailed to you at the end of each step.
