Major Flood Control

Major Flood Control projects are flood risk reduction projects that include dikes, levees, floodwalls, seawalls, groins, jetties, dams and large-scale waterway channelization and erosion projects related to beach nourishment or re-nourishment. Any long-term flood hazard mitigation measures, including major flood risk reduction projects, which are cost-effective, feasible, and designed to substantially reduce risk of future damage and loss of life from flooding, are eligible for consideration under the HMGP and PDM programs. These projects are ineligible under the FMA program.
