Building Resilient Infrastructure & Communities

Posted: 11/19/2023

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.

BRIC Funding Supports:

  • Capability & Capacity Building Activities – Activities that enhance the knowledge, skills, and expertise of the current workforce to expand or improve the administration of mitigation assistance.
  • Hazard Mitigation Projects – Cost-effective projects designed to increase resilience and public safety; reduce injuries and loss of life; and reduce damage and destruction to property, critical services, facilities, and infrastructure.

  • Management Costs – Financial assistance to reimburse the recipient and subrecipient for eligible and reasonable indirect costs, direct administrative costs, and other administrative expenses associated with a specific mitigation measure or project.


Applications must be submitted via by February 29, 2024
