FEDERAL FUNDING OPPORTUNITIES FOR FLOOD RESILIENCE: A GUIDE FOR SMALL CITIES
From assessing risk to implementing projects, small municipalities can face enormous costs that they often cannot cover alone. The American Flood Coalition developed this guide as resource for local leaders exploring federal funding opportunities for flooding projects in small municipalities. While there may be additional funding opportunities for which a connection to flooding could be made, this guide is focused on opportunities where there is a trend of funded projects that address flooding and sea level rise. In addition to summarizing how each federal program can be used by small municipalities, the guide includes external links to applications and in-depth program information, as well as Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) numbers that applicants may use to search for grant information on federal websites. This guide is primarily targeted towards municipalities with populations of 50,000 or fewer, but communities of all sizes may find its information helpful.
