FEMA’s Notice of Funding Opportunities for FMA and BRIC Grants

FEMA posted the Fiscal Year 2020 (FY20) Hazard Mitigation Assistance (HMA) Notification of Funding Opportunities (NOFOs) for the Flood Mitigation Assistance (FMA) grant program and the new Building Resilient Infrastructure and Communities (BRIC) pre-disaster mitigation grant program on grants.gov. Grant Management Associates has experience with both of these applications - please let us know if you are interested in discussing them further.

This year there is $660 million available for these two programs combined.


FEMA’s two competitive mitigation grant programs provide states, local communities, tribes and territories (SLTTs) 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 damages.


The application period opens on September 30, 2020. Eligible applicants must apply for funding using the new FEMA Grants Outcome (FEMA GO), which is now the management system for FMA and BRIC. Please submit applications in the FEMA Go Portal no later than 3 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on January 29, 2021. Applications received by FEMA after this deadline will not be considered for funding.


To learn more, view the BRIC Fact Sheet and FMA Fact Sheet.


In August, FEMA will offer a webinar on the Fiscal Year 2020 NOFOs for prospective applicants to learn more and ask questions about the NOFOs for the Flood Mitigation Assistance (FMA) and the Building Resilient Infrastructure and Communities (BRIC) grants. This webinar will be offered three times, and applicants may attend any session. There will also be a NOFO overview webinar with a question and answers portion for potential tribal applicants.


In September, FEMA will offer a webinar on common Pre-Disaster Mitigation grant application errors and how to avoid them. This webinar will be offered two times, and applicants may attend either session.


Registration for these sessions will be required, and a link will be disseminated soon.
