Environmental Requirements to Apply for FEMA Funding

When a community applies for FEMA funding — such as Public Assistance, Hazard Mitigation Assistance or Preparedness Grants — potential impacts to the environment and cultural resources must be considered.

NOTE: Environmental requirements do not apply to individuals and families applying for assistance.

FEMA ArtWorks Program

The FEMA ArtWorks program is designed to raise risk awareness and start dialogues on the need and value of flood mitigation. The program does this through partnerships between FEMA, artists, and local communities. The partners share the goal of communicating the importance of mitigation to reduce risk by using information people can relate to in a personal way.

Project: Community Forms

The first project completed under the FEMA ArtWorks banner supported by Region 8, Community Forms is an art installation that serves as both a community gathering space and a means to redirect stormwater. Learn more about Community Forms.

Find Your Flood Map

Risk Mapping, Assessment and Planning (Risk MAP) is a national FEMA program that works with states, tribes, territories and local communities to evaluate and better understand their current flood risk, as well as the actions that can be taken to mitigate and become more resilient against future risk.
