Flood Financial Assistance Programs
The Flood Mitigation Assistance Grant application period for FY2020 opened September 29th, 2020. Grant subapplications from communities are to be submitted to the TWDB through the new FEMA Grants Outcomes (FEMA GO) application system. For more information about the new FEMA GO grant application system, check out this startup guide.
The Flood Mitigation Assistance grant program, under the Federal Emergency Management Agency's (FEMA) Hazard Mitigation Assistance Grant Program, assists states and communities by providing federal funds for cost-effective measures to reduce or eliminate the long-term risk of flood damage to buildings, manufactured homes, and other structures insurable under the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).
The Flood Infrastructure Fund program is a new state-funded source of financial assistance for flood mitigation projects.
The Flood Information Clearinghouse is the state's first "one-stop-shop" for information on flood mitigation funding opportunities for Texas’ communities. It is a cooperative effort between state agencies that administer flood financial assistance programs.
