Funding Opportunity: Building Resilient Infrastructure and Communities Program
On Aug. 4, 2020, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) officially announced the Notice of Funding Opportunity for the first funding cycle of the Building Resilient Infrastructure and Communities (BRIC) Program. BRIC replaces the FEMA Pre-Disaster Mitigation Program. BRIC makes federal funds available to states, local communities, tribes, and territories for pre-disaster mitigation activities, including Capability- and Capacity-Building Activities, Mitigation Projects, and Management Costs. Visit the FEMA web page for detailed information about applying for this funding opportunity.
The BRIC application period opened on Sept. 30, 2020. Applications must be submitted by 3 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (EST) on Jan. 29, 2021.
The following competitive funding opportunities will be available through BRIC:

· Tribal Set-Aside: $20 million. All Indian tribal governments (federally recognized) may apply under the Tribal Set-Aside
· National Competition for Mitigation Projects: $446.4 million (estimated). Remaining funds which are not awarded from the State and Territory Allocation or Tribal Set-Aside will be included in the national competition.
