FEMA Mitigation Grants Application Period Open

Smyrna – The FY 2020 Building Resilient Infrastructure and Communities Grant Program (BRIC), as well as the Flood Mitigation Assistance Grant Program (FMA), funding notice has been announced and the application period is now open.  The BRIC Grant Program (previously known as the Pre-Disaster Mitigation Grant Program) is intended to assist states, U.S. Territories, federally-recognized tribes, and local communities in implementing pre-disaster natural hazard mitigation projects by awarding planning and project grants designed to mitigate future damage before disaster strikes.  More detailed information regarding the BRIC Grant Program can be found at https://www.fema.gov/grants/mitigation/building-resilient-infrastructure.

The FMA Grant Program is a competitive grant program that provides funding to states, local communities, federally-recognized tribes and territories for projects that reduce or eliminate the risk of repetitive flood damage to buildings insured by the National Flood Insurance Program.  More detailed information regarding the FMA Grant Program can be found at https://www.fema.gov/grants/mitigation/floods.

The Delaware Emergency Management Agency (DEMA) is seeking eligible projects to be submitted through sub-applicants (state and local governments) for the BRIC and FMA grant program.  DEMA will review all pre-applications for eligibility and determine which projects will move forward in the application process by November 20, 2020.  Eligible project sub-applications will be required to be submitted to FEMA for further review by December 31, 2020.

For additional information, or if your organization wishes to apply for BRIC and FMA funding, contact your county emergency management office, or Joshua Kelly at DEMA, 302-659-2313, or joshua.kelly@delaware.gov.
