Flood Mitigation Assistance Program

FEMA's Flood Mitigation Assistance (FMA) grant program is a resource provided to the city meant to reduce or eliminate the risk of repetitive flood damage to buildings and structures insured under the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). The FMA Program is a nationally competitive annual FEMA grant program. Prioritization is given to those structures listed as Severe Repetitive Loss and Repetitive Loss. 

Cost shares for the homeowner will vary depending on the validation of the structure and are pre-determined by FEMA in most cases.

Please call 904-209-4327 or email FMA@citystaug.com for more information.

FEMA will prioritize properties based on the structure indicator: 

  • Insured Severe Repetitive Loss primary residences 
  • Insured Repetitive Loss  primary residences 
  • Insured Severe Repetitive Loss secondary residences 
  • Insured Repetitive Loss  secondary residences 

 Project activity types will include:

  •  Elevations
  •  Reconstructions (if applicable)
