Thirty-one communities in Pennsylvania participate in the National Flood Insurance Program’s Community Rating System. The voluntary program provides reduced insurance premiums in communities that proactively implement flood plain management practices—such as acquisition, relocation, and elevation of structures; restoration and protection of natural spaces; and flood proofing—that exceed the program’s minimum requirements.

The highest-rated communities in the state are the cities of Harrisburg and Wilkes-Barre, which each earned a 20 percent discount for eligible properties.
