[ARCHIVED] FEMA's Building Resilient Infrastructure and Communities (BRIC) grants

Building Resilient Infrastructure and Communities (BRIC) grants are federal Hazard Mitigation Assistance (HMA) grants which provide funds to states, local communities, tribes and territories. These grants fund eligible mitigation activities to strengthen preparedness; funding is used on projects that will reduce future disaster losses. Through BRIC, FEMA will provide $600,000 in FY20 to states and territories for such mitigation projects and capability- and capacity-building activities. 

FEMA is offering informational webinars for Hazard Mitigation Assistance (HMA) grant applicants. The webinars will provide an overview of the grant programs and details about the agency’s funding priorities and review process.

Webinars are scheduled for 2pm on August 18, 20, and 25, and September 1 and 2 (webinar registration page). FEMA will also host the webinar "Avoiding Application Pitfalls".

The new BRIC grant program is for pre-disaster mitigation activities and replaces FEMA’s existing Pre-Disaster Mitigation program. 

The BRIC priorities are to incentivize:

  • Public infrastructure projects;
  • Projects that mitigate risk to one or more lifelines;
  • Projects that incorporate nature-based solutions; and
  • The adoptions and enforcement of modern building codes.

FEMA offers a guide on nature based solutions for BRIC grants (PDF).

The application period opens September 30. Deadline: January 29, 2021.
