    Monmouth County’s Community Rating System (CRS) Assistance Program has been recognized by two national organizations, the U.S. Department of Commerce’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the National Association of Counties (NACo).

    “It is an honor for Monmouth County to be recognized on a national level for a program that stemmed from a way to help our residents recover from a horrible storm,” said Freeholder Deputy Director Serena DiMaso, liaison to the County’s Office of Emergency Management (OEM). “In the wake of Superstorm Sandy, our towns needed to get fully engaged in flood hazard mitigation and better understand the CRS and how it can help the community and the residents save money.”
