Key highlights on regulations, policies, and program funding for the transportation professional
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has released the fiscal year 2023 funding opportunity for the Building Resilient Infrastructure & Communities (BRIC) grant program. BRIC is funded at $1B for this grant cycle.
BRIC grants support states, local communities, tribes, and territories as they undertake hazard mitigation projects, reducing the risks they face from disasters and natural hazards. The program recognizes the growing hazards associated with climate change and supports natural hazard risk mitigation activities that promote climate adaptation and resilience with respect to those hazards.
Eligible applicants include states, the District of Columbia, U.S. territories, and federally recognized tribal governments.
Applications must be submitted via Grants.gov by February 29, 2024
The Federal Emergency Management Agency is tasked with coordinating and responding to disasters and emergencies that occur within the United States.
The agency's primary mission is to assist individuals and communities in preparing for, mitigating the impact of, responding to, and recovering from various hazards, including natural disasters, acts of terrorism, and other man-made crises.
FEMA provides financial assistance, logistical support, and expertise to affected regions, working in collaboration with state and local governments, as well as non-profit organizations.
