FEMA Opens $660 Million Grant Application Process
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) opened applications on September 30, 2020 for two hazard mitigation grant programs totaling $660 million. The two grant programs, the Flood Mitigation Assistance grant and the Building Resilient Infrastructure and Communities (BRIC) grant, will provide funds to states, local communities, tribes, and territories for eligible mitigation activities. These programs allow for funding to be used on projects that will reduce future disaster losses and strengthen the nation’s ability to build a culture of preparedness.
Applications for both of the grants are due on January 29, 2021.
