Bipartisan Infrastructure Law

The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) provided the Department of Homeland Security and its components $8 billion for infrastructure projects. Of that, FEMA received $6.8B for community-wide mitigation to reduce disaster suffering and avoid future disaster costs in the face of more frequent and severe events.  

Key priorities include:

  • Investing public dollars wisely and equitably to reach under-served communities
  • Creating stronger and more resilient infrastructure
  • Building sustainable partnerships with state, local, tribal and territorial governments to tackle the climate crisis
  • Advancing environmental justice and investing in communities that have too often been left behind

Funding Opportunities

Mitigation projects, capability and capacity building activities, and management costs.  

Improving cybersecurity and critical infrastructure through two grant programs: the State and Local Cybersecurity Grant Program (SLCGP) and the Tribal Cybersecurity Grant Program (TCGP).

Mitigation projects that reduce or eliminate the risk of repetitive flood damage to buildings insured by the National Flood Insurance Program. 

Strengthening state dam safety grants and rehabilitation of eligible high hazard potential dams (HHPD).

Capitalization grants for administration of revolving loan funds for mitigation projects and activities to increase resilience and mitigate impacts from natural hazards. Loans may be used to satisfy a local government’s non-federal cost share requirement for Hazard Mitigation Assistance, Building Resilience Infrastructure and Communities and Flood Mitigation Assistance. 

Flood mitigation assistance available within the disaster recovery timeframe, for repetitively flooded and substantially damaged buildings insured under the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) in advance of the annual grant process.

BIL-Funded FEMA Projects

Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) funds are being used by FEMA to help states, local communities, tribes, and territories increase resilience to disasters and other hazards, as well as cybersecurity threats.
