The City of Houston, in partnership with Texas Water Development Board (TWDB), is applying for a FEMA Flood Mitigation Assistance Grant. Through this grant program, FEMA can provide funding to elevate qualifying flood-prone homes with highest priority to Severe Repetitive Loss and Repetitive Loss properties. The grant program is voluntary and not guaranteed for funding. You must have a current NFIP flood insurance policy to be eligible.
