Flood Mitigation Assistance (FMA) program
The FMA application period also starts on September 30th. There is $160M in funding available and as with PDM, the competition is fierce for projects to receive funding. The FMA program provides funding to states, territories, tribes and local governments for projects, planning and management costs for projects that reduce or eliminate long-term risk of flood damage to structures insured under the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).
