Hazard Mitigation Planning, Grant Application and Evaluation, and Risk Based Funding - Engage BRIC - June 13
This session will provide a 20-minute general update of the program design and development of the BRIC program followed by an open forum with participants. FEMA invites you to join the conversation and provide your thoughts about how state, territorial, tribal, and local governments can best leverage FEMA funding for Hazard Mitigation Planning to guide investments in activities and projects that will break the cycle of disaster damage, reconstruction, and repeated damage. Your input to FEMA can also improve or streamline the application form (and submission process) for BRIC projects. We especially welcome the thoughts of individuals who have familiarity with FEMA’s Hazard Mitigation Assistance application. During this session, we will also discuss the various options for developing a risk-based methodology for grant funding and welcome your feedback.
