BRIC and Flood Mitigation Assistance Competitive Selections: Project Overviews

The Building Resilient Infrastructure and Communities (BRIC) and Flood Mitigation Assistance (FMA) programs support states, local communities, tribes and territories as they undertake hazard mitigation projects, reducing the risks they face from disasters and natural hazards.

BRIC selections are based on the highest composite score until the funding amount available is reached. The benefits of these projects often extend to disadvantaged or underserved populations of larger communities, where access to health and human services, transportation and communications is a priority.

Flood Mitigation Assistance selections focus on eliminating the risk of repetitive flood damage to buildings and structures insured under the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). Subapplication submissions and selections with high saturations of Severe Repetitive and Repetitive Loss properties continue to increase.

The competitive project selections are for both programs beginning in 2020.
