Description: Provides funding to state and local governments for projects that reduce or eliminate the risk of repetitive flood damage to buildings insured by the National Flood Insurance Program (i.e., the goal of this program is to decrease claim payouts). 

Eligible Recipients: State and local governments. Notably, local governments submit mitigation planning and project applications to their state during the open application cycle. After reviewing applications, the state prioritizes and forwards the applications to their FEMA Regional Office. Local governments should contact their State Hazard Mitigation Officer here.

Eligible Uses: These grants are focused on projects that reduce flood risks posed to repetitively flooded properties insured under the National Flood Insurance Program. Federal Emergency Management Agency is distributing Fiscal Year 2021 Flood Mitigation Assistance funding amount as follows: 

  • Project scoping (previously advance assistance) to develop community flood mitigation projects and/or individual flood mitigation projects that will subsequently reduce flood claims against the National Flood Insurance Program. 

  • Projects that address community flood risk for the purpose of reducing National Flood Insurance Program flood claim payments. 

  • Technical assistance to maintain a viable Flood Mitigation Assistance program over time.

  • Planning sub-applications for the flood hazard component of State, Local, Territory, and Tribal Hazard Mitigation Plans and plan updates. 

Deadline: TBA. Applications for Fiscal Year 2022 will open in Fall 2022.
