Status of Flood Mitigation Assistance Projects
Grant Funding Overview:
Grant opportunities are announced annually by FEMA. The city strategically identifies project opportunities, whether public or private, throughout the course of the year. Projects which weigh heavier are those which address the primary threats and also serve to decrease future National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) payouts. The current project focus is on neighborhood, regional, and watershed-level projects in line with the city's Resilience Strategy and Vision 2100.

Please note
: Individuals cannot apply directly to FEMA for funding. The city submits application materials to VDEM on behalf of a property owner. VDEM will determine if a project is cost effective and apply to FEMA for grant funding consideration.

Provided below is the status of the city's approved projects and pending applications.
