For the Fiscal Year 2020 application cycle, through the National Competition, FEMA selected 22 large competitive projects based on the highest composite score until the funding amount available had been reached. The benefits of these projects oftentimes extend to disadvantaged or underserved populations of larger communities, where access to health and human services, transportation and communications is a priority. These projects also focus on protecting large and small community infrastructure, which helps ensure the continuity of vital services. The 22 selected projects fell into seven categories of primary activity type: Elevation, Flood Control, Floodproofing, Relocation, Saferoom/Shelter, Utility and Infrastructure Protection, and Wildfire Management.
The application period to apply for fiscal year 2021 (FY 2021) BRIC funding will open on Sept. 30, 2021, and close at 3 p.m. Eastern Time on Jan. 28, 2022. FEMA encourages sub-applicants and applicants to apply. There is $1 billion available in BRIC funding. Applications submitted after the deadline will not be considered for funding.
FEMA’s two competitive mitigation grant programs provide states, local communities, tribes and territories funding for eligible mitigation activities to strengthen our nation’s ability to build a culture of preparedness by reducing disaster losses and protecting life and property from future disaster damage.
