The Flood Mitigation Assistance (FMA) Program makes available federal funds to State, Local and Tribal Governments to implement and sustain cost-effective measures that reduce or eliminate risk of flood damage to buildings insured under the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).
FEMA will fund
planning up to $100,000 per applicant with a maximum of $50,000 for state plans and $25,000 for local plans.
FEMA will fund technical assistance up to $50,000 for states who were awarded FMA Grant Program funds totaling at least $1 million in FY 201 5. The remaining FMA funds will be awarded on a competitive basis for projects that will reduce or eliminate claims under the NFIP with a focus on mitigation of severe repetitive loss and repetitive loss properties as well as projects that will reduce the risk profile in communities through mitigation of the largest number of NFIP-insured properties on a neighborhood level.
Applicants must apply for FMA funding through the Mitigation eGrants system on the FEMA Grants Portal accessible on the Internet at https:/portal.fema.gov
