The Building Resilient Infrastructure and Communities The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) makes federal funds available through the new Building Resilient Infrastructures and Communities (BRIC) grant program to states, local communities, tribes and territories (SLTTs) for pre-disaster mitigation activities.
BRIC is a new FEMA pre-disaster hazard mitigation program that replaces the existing Pre-Disaster Mitigation (PDM) program. The Disaster Recovery Reform Act, Section 1234; amended Section 203 of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act (Stafford Act) and authorizes BRIC.
The BRIC priorities are to:
incentivize public infrastructure projects;
incentivize projects that mitigate risk to one or more lifelines;
incentivize projects that incorporate nature-based solutions; and,
incentivize adoption and enforcement of modern building codes.
FEMA has published a Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) for the BRIC grant program. FEMA encourages reviewing the BRIC NOFO before applying, as it provides detailed program information and other grant application and administration requirements.
