Every year there is an allocation of federal funding that can be applied for and reviewed by FEMA. The fiscal year 2021 FMA Program had $70 Million allocated towards community flood mitigation.
As a nationally competitive grant, there is always a chance that the application may not be selected for funding. While that is unfortunate, the grant is annual, meaning it can be applied for yearly.
The City of St. Augustine is currently preparing for the 2022 FMA Application for the upcoming application cycle and will be able to use previous documentation received in 2021 and place it into the 2022 grant application.
