Flood Risk Reduction Grant Programs

Federal grants can be used to fund the buyout, elevation or reconstruction of eligible residential properties. The City applies directly to the State for funding on the community's behalf. There are different flood risk reduction grants depending on:

  • the history of flooding at the property
  • if the property is currently covered by flood insurance
  • other program requirements and eligibility

GRANT PROGRAMS

Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP)
Assists in implementing long-term hazard mitigation projects following a Presidential major disaster declaration. The City is currently awaiting the announcement of funds related to Hurricane Harvey.

Flood Mitigation Assistance (FMA)
Provides funds for projects to reduce or eliminate the risk of flood damage to buildings that are insured under the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) on an annual basis. See below for status updates.
