Emergency Response and Disaster Mitigation

  •  FEMA’s annual pre-disaster mitigation programs, the Building Resilient Infrastructure and Communities (BRIC) and Flood Mitigation Assistance (FMA) grants, typically come out in the late Summer/early Fall timeframe. Turnaround times to submit a Notice of Interest to CalOES can be very short, so being proactive is worthwhile if these opportunities are of interest.
