Summary of Subapplications
Summary of Initial Selections
Subapplication Status by State
The Flood Mitigation Assistance grant program is a competitive annual grant program that provides funding to states, local communities, federally recognized tribes, and territories. Funds can be used for projects that reduce or eliminate the risk of repetitive flood damage to buildings insured by the National Flood Insurance Program.
On May 19, 2023, FEMA announced the Flood Mitigation Assistance grant program initial round of selections for the tribal set-aside and the state and territory allocations.
For fiscal year 2022, FEMA made a total of $800 million available for the Flood Mitigation Assistance program. This is a 5-fold increase from the previous grant cycle and, to date, the most funding historically offered by FEMA.
In total, for the Flood Mitigation Assistance grant program in fiscal year 2022, FEMA received 270 subapplications totaling nearly $980 million from 29 states, territories, and the District of Columbia.
FEMA received $602 million in funding requests for localized flood risk reduction projects, which is over three times what was received in the last grant cycle.
Investing in flood mitigation measures through this grant program is a cost-effective way to reduce the risk of flooding and associated economic losses compared with the cost of responding to and recovering from flooding.
This funding will address effects of climate change and reduces flood risk for disadvantaged communities across the country.

Initial Selections Summary
In these initial selections in fiscal year 2022, FEMA selected 58 subapplications eligible for Flood Mitigation Assistance grant funding for capability and capacity building activities.
Eligible project types include updating flood hazard mitigation plans, technical assistance, and project scoping. FEMA awards these funds so communities can enhance capability and capacity and implement mitigation projects faster.
Highlights from the selections include:
- Multiple subapplications selected include funding requests for project scoping activities future eligibility to receive funding through FEMA’s grant programs that address localized flood risk reduction and individual flood mitigation.
- 25 subapplications selected in disadvantaged communities totaling $10.4 million in federal cost share funding. These communities received a Center’s for Disease Control and Prevention Social Vulnerability Index (CDC-SVI) standard score of 0.6 or greater and will receive nearly 45% of the total federal cost share available for the initial round of selections
- In the District of Columbia, FEMA has selected one subapplication for project scoping activities that will allow the District of Columbia Homeland Security and Emergency Management Agency (DC HSEMA) and the Department of Energy and Environment (DOEE) to incorporate new flood risk data into high-level planning documents, development of resilience plans, and identify mitigation projects that reduce flooding of homes in the Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA), In addition, this funding will enhance community outreach and public awareness of flood risk that will educate residents on the importance of mitigation and purchasing flood insurance.
- In North Carolina, FEMA selected one subapplication for project scoping activities to be used for conducting outreach with repetitive loss property owners in the community, and other activities that will lead to the development of future individual flood mitigation projects.
- In Pennsylvania, FEMA has selected six subapplications, including project scoping activities in the City of Coatesville. Coatesville experienced flooding from storm events in 2021 and will seek long term resilience solutions to reduce the potential for flooding in urban areas.
- In Texas, FEMA selected 15 subapplications for $6.7 million for project scoping activities and planning. This funding will support the evaluation of past flood events and implementation of mitigation planning to reduce future flood risk in communities across the state.
FEMA will announce additional selections later this summer, which will include more complex projects, including those being selected for Building Resilient Infrastructure and Communities grant funding through the National Competition and Flood Mitigation Assistance grant funding for individual flood mitigation projects and localized flood risk reduction projects.
