The City of Houston, in partnership with the Texas Water Development Board, will submit a grant application on behalf of interested homeowners to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for the Flood Mitigation Assistance (FMA) Grant. This grant will request funds for elevation of flood-prone homes.
Who Is Elgible?
Homeowners must have flood insurance from FEMA’s National Flood Insurance Program. The flood insurance must be effective at the time the grant application is submitted and be maintained throughout the grant process. The cost to raise your home must be less than the estimated amount of future flood claim payments.
The deadline for homeowners to submit their information to the City of Houston is Friday, August 25, 2017 at 5 pm.
