In December, FEMA hosted a series of informational sessions around its 2020 Notices of Funding Opportunities for the Hazard Mitigation Assistance (HMA) Flood Mitigation Assistance (FMA) and Building Resilient Infrastructure and Communities (BRIC) grant programs. If you’re still interested in applying for funding under these grant programs, you can view the session recordings, presentations, and transcripts, which offer an overview of the two programs, details about the agency’s funding priorities, and common grant application errors and how to avoid them.
This year, $700 million in funding is available through these two programs – $200 million for qualified FMA initiatives and $500 million for qualified BRIC initiatives. Eligible applicants must apply using the new FEMA Grants Outcome (FEMA GO) system. You can learn more about both grant programs, their scope and requirements here.
As a reminder, the application deadline is January 29th at 3pm ET.
