FEMA posted funding notices for two hazard mitigation grant programs for more than $660 million.  The two grant programs, the Flood Mitigation Assistance grant and the Building Resilient Infrastructure and Communities, or BRIC, will provide funds to states, local communities, tribes and territories for eligible mitigation activities to strengthen our nation’s ability to build a culture of preparedness.  These programs allow for funding to be used on projects that will reduce future disaster losses.

The application period opens on September 30, 2020.  Eligible applicants must apply for funding using the new FEMA Grants Outcome (FEMA GO), which is now the management system for FMA and BRIC.  Please submit applications at FEMA Go Portal no later than 3 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on January 29, 2021. Applications received by FEMA after this deadline will not be considered for funding.

For assistance, please contact Olivia Ranseen, Community & Economic Development Specialist at olivia.ranseen@kipda.org.
