Community Rating System Update

Napa County’s Director of Planning, Building, & Environmental Services announced today an update to Napa County’s rating in the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Community Rating System (CRS). Federal Emergency Management Agency implemented the CRS program in 1990 to recognize and encourage community floodplain management activities exceeding the minimum National Flood Insurance Program standards. Napa County’s enrollment in the CRS the became effective October 1, 2017. 

Napa County proudly joined 1,444 other communities nationwide and received a CRS rating of 7 in 2017 and publication of this notice on an annual basis allows us to continue this rating until the next assessment in 2022. This means that residents in the unincorporated areas are eligible to receive up to a 15 percent discount on their flood insurance premiums. Residents in the unincorporated areas who pay flood insurance should contact their insurance provider about how to save money due to this favorable CRS rating. 

As part of the CRS, the County prepares an annual progress report on our Hazard Mitigation Plan objective to promote a flood safer community. The 2020 annual progress report can be found at the following link: Annual HMP Progress Report
