Grant opportunities are announced annually by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (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.
