2023 application process will be discussed
On Wednesday, May 3, at 3:00pm and 6:00pm, in coordination with its consultant Quality Engineering and Surveying (QES), the City of St. Augustine will offer open house workshops for residents interested in participating in the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) 2023 Flood Mitigation Assistance (FMA) funding application submittal. The workshops will be held in The Alcazar Room of City Hall, located at 75 King Street, St. Augustine, FL 32084.
There will be a brief presentation of the FMA application process with ample time for questions and one-on-one discussions with the consultant. Homeowners who are interested in any of the City’s flood mitigation programs are also encouraged to send an email with their name, address, and phone number to email@example.com and a member of City staff will respond to discuss available programs. To speak directly with a QES team member in advanced of the workshops about storm damage, send an email to Andy Daray, Project Coordinator for Quality Engineering and Surveying, LLC.
The FMA Program is a nationally competitive annual FEMA grant program, and every year there is an allocation of federal funding that can be applied for and reviewed by FEMA. Prioritization is given to those structures listed as Severe Repetitive Loss and Repetitive Loss. In fiscal year 2022, the City had over 60 residents apply for the Flood Mitigation Assistance Program. FEMA is expected to announce award results in late summer 2023.
