The Floodplain Management, Protection and Risk Awareness Grant Program supports local agency efforts to prepare for flooding events by providing financial assistance for flood risk reduction activities related to stormwater, mudslide, and other flash flood related protections. This Program will incorporate an increased focus on economically disadvantaged community assistance and multi-benefit project features.
The program was established in 2019 by the State Legislature and Governor Gavin Newsom through Assembly Bill 74, which also authorized the use of funds from Proposition 68: The California Drought, Water, Parks, Climate, Coastal Protection, and Outdoor Access For All Fund Act of 2018 of Senate Bill No. 5. This grant program will fund multi-benefit flood risk reduction projects which primarily address stormwater, mudslide, and flash flood-related protections. Priority will be given to flood risk reduction projects located in a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) special flood hazard area, however funding projects to achieve FEMA certification is not an objective of the Program.
