FMA is funded at $800M for this grant cycle
FMA grants provides states, U.S. territories, federally recognized tribal governments, and local agencies with funding to reduce or eliminate the risk of repetitive flood damage to buildings and structures insured under the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), and within NFIP-participating communities. The FMA 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.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency coordinates and respondes to disasters and emergencies that occur within the U.S.
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.
The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) provides flood insurance to property owners, renters and businesses, and having this coverage helps them recover faster when floodwaters recede.
The NFIP works with communities required to adopt and enforce floodplain management regulations that help mitigate flooding effects.
