Cal OES BRIC Subapplication Recommendations and Funding Priorities:
Along with FEMA’s NOFO guidelines, Cal OES recommends that subapplicants further consider the competitiveness of the BRIC program when proposing projects. Projects are most likely to be successful if they address one or more of the following:
High-impact, neighborhood scale, natural hazard risk reduction that mitigates risk to critical infrastructure or achieves whole community risk-reduction. Provide protection and benefits for disadvantaged communities Address climate impacts including sea level rise, drought, extreme precipitation or heat, wildfire, and/or more frequent storms (where applicable) Projects that advance climate adaptation, including through inspiring generational infrastructure change and/or by including one or more nature-based solution (NBS) are particularly encouraged. Where appropriate, subapplications should describe how the project will make the community more resilient to climate change. Address and anticipate future conditions including those related to climate, demographic, population, and/or land use changes Project details should include how future conditions were considered in the planning, design, and operation stages and how the project will help communities better respond to these conditions. Include unique or innovative partnerships such as public-private partnerships
FEMA details 6 qualitative criteria in the Notice of Funding Opportunity. Subapplicants should explicitly address each in their scope of work.
