$1 Billion in Funding Available for Resilience and Disaster Mitigation Projects!
Type and Cost Share:
BRIC operates as a grant with a 75% federal and 25% state/local cost-sharing arrangement, but small and impoverished communities may benefit from a 90% federal and 10% state/local match. Non-federal cost-sharing can comprise cash, donated services, third-party in-kind contributions, materials, or a combination thereof. FEMA encourages creative use of public and private-sector partnerships to meet the non-federal cost share.
