Funding Categories Priorities
- Project Scoping – develop effective mitigation alternatives. This process includes activities such as identification and evaluation of technical feasibility, cost review, and cost effectiveness, as well as environmental and cultural resource considerations.
- 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 (including natural systems) from a multitude of natural hazards and the effects of climate change.
These projects focus primarily on infrastructure improvements to stormwater, drainage, sewer systems and levee systems and/or dams to build community resilience against future flooding. However, other projects focus on tsunamis, seismic activity, landslides, and wildfire, and nature-based solutions including greenways, open space, beach revitalization, climate resilience, and shoreline preservation.
