Fiscal Year 2023 Selections

On July 2, 2024, FEMA announced the subapplicants selected for the BRIC program in four funding opportunities:

  • State or Territory Allocation
  • Tribal Set-Aside
  • State or Territory Building Code Plus-Up
  • Tribal Building Code Plus-Up
  • National Competition

The federal cost share for these total more than $882.6 million. In addition, 93 communities, territories, and tribal nations were announced for the FY23 BRIC Direct Technical Assistance initiative.

An additional $116.2 million for recipient management costs is allocated for 79 states, tribes, territories, and the District of Columbia. This brings the total amount of funding for this BRIC grant cycle to nearly $1 billion.

BRIC Direct Technical Assistance

The BRIC program also offers communities, territories and tribes non-financial direct technical assistance. This support helps with hazard planning and projects.

BRIC DTA does not require a previous grant subapplication or award. Communities also don’t need an approved hazard mitigation plan to apply.

Visit the BRIC DTA web page for more information or to learn about participating communities, territories and tribal nations.

Equity

The FY23 BRIC selections further underscore FEMA's commitment to equity and environmental justice. These awards will assist the most disadvantaged communities in building resilience to climate change and extreme weather events. Aligning with the Justice40 Initiative, BRIC will advance the goal that 40% of the overall benefits of certain federal investments flow to disadvantaged communities that may be overburdened by pollution and under-investment.
