DENTON, Texas — The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has awarded $700,100 to the state of Texas for the acquisition and demolition of two properties in the city of New Braunfels in Comal County, Texas

FEMA’s Repetitive Flood Claims (RFC) program is funding 100 percent of the mitigation project.  

By removing the two structures, which are located within city limits along the Guadalupe River, property loss, damage claims and the need for emergency responders to assist during a flood event can then be eliminated.  After the structures are removed, the area will be converted into open space.

This particular grant program assists states and communities reduce flood damage to insured properties that have had one or more claims under the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).
