The City of Largo participates in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) Community Rating System (CRS) with a class 6 rating. The class 6 rating provides a 20% discount (up from 15%) on flood insurance policies issued or renewed in the Special Flood Hazard Areas. Participation requires the city to submit annual re-certification documentation. The city partners with the county and other municipalities to produce the Local Mitigation Strategy (LMS) report.

The NFIP CRS is a voluntary incentive program to recognize communities for implementing floodplain management practices that exceed the Federal minimum requirements of the NFIP to provide protection from flooding. In exchange for a community's proactive efforts to reduce flood risk, policyholders can receive reduced flood insurance premiums for buildings in the community.
