The Flood Mitigation Assistance (FMA) program provides funds for projects to reduce or eliminate risk of flood damage to buildings that are insured under the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) on an annual basis.
There are three types of FMA grants available to applicants:
- Planning Grants - to prepare flood mitigation plans
- Project Grants - to implement measures to reduce flood losses, such as elevation, acquisition or relocation of NFIP-insured structures
- Management Cost Grants - for the grantee to help administer the FMA program and activities
Please see the chart below for information on how to apply to the FMA program.
