Flood Recovery Grant Opportunity

On Wednesday, October 7th, the City of Houston’s Floodplain Management Office hosted a public meeting regarding the FEMA Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP), a program through which the City of Houston is applying for a grant in partnership with the Texas Department of Emergency Management. HMGP is a state-wide competitive program and funding is not guaranteed.

If the City of Houston is awarded HMGP funding, the grant will assist some qualified homeowners with the cost of either home elevation or demolition-reconstruction. Interested parties must submit all required documents before 5PM on Friday, November 6th to be considered for inclusion in the HMGP grant application.
