U.S. Department of Homeland Security: Flood Mitigation Assistance
Flood Mitigation Assistance funding is available to states, U.S territories, Indian Tribal governments, and local communities to reduce or eliminate the risk of repetitive flood damage to buildings and structures insured under the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). Two types of community flood mitigation activities will be funded:
- Advance assistance for flood mitigation design and development of community flood mitigation projects that will subsequently reduce flood claims
- Mitigation projects that address community flood risk for the purpose of reducing NFIP flood claim payments
Amount: A total of $210,000,000 is available (up to $4,000,000 for advance assistance mitigation projects and up to $70,000,000 for mitigation projects) to make 120 awards. The project period is 36-48 months. Applicants must provide a cost share of 25 percent of eligible activity costs derived from non-Federal sources.
Note: At least $140,000,000 will be used for technical assistance, flood mitigation planning, and mitigation projects that reduce the risk of flooding to severe repetitive loss (SRL) and repetitive loss (RL) properties.
Eligibility: States; District of Columbia; U.S. territories; and Federally-recognized Indian Tribal governments.
