FEMA provided an opportunity for stakeholders to share their thoughts and experiences with FEMA following the initial launch of the Building Resilient Infrastructure and Communities (BRIC) grant program in fiscal year 2020. The three-month survey period ended in Aug. 31, 2023.
This effort aimed to identify successes and opportunities for reducing barriers to access BRIC funding for state, local, tribal and territorial partners.
We want to thank those who took the time to provide FEMA with information to help inform updates to BRIC. FEMA plans to publish and share a final summary from the 2023 effort in the spring of 2024, to help inform program design for future grant cycles.
We hope that the feedback collected through this effort will inform continuous improvement of the BRIC program and benefit process improvements across FEMA’s Hazard Mitigation Assistance grant programs.
FEMA will request feedback to the BRIC grant program in 2026. In the meantime, please direct feedback by email.
