2017 Home Elevation Grants

The City of Houston, in partnership with the Texas Water Development Board, will submit a grant application on behalf of interested homeowners to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for the Flood Mitigation Assistance (FMA) Grant.  This grant will request funds for elevation of flood-prone homes.

Who Is Eligible?

Homeowners must have flood insurance from FEMA's National Flood Insurance Program. The flood insurance must be effective at the time the grant application is submitted and be maintained throughout the grant process. The cost to raise your home must be less than the estimated amount of future flood claim payments.

2017-2018 Board elections will take place at the meeting and new board members will be announced.

Residents will learn about the activities of the Board over the past year and hear the direction for the new year to come.  Please arrive at least 15 minutes early to cast your ballot for the new directors before the meeting starts. Besides learning more about our local issues, the meeting is a great opportunity to socialize with your neighbors and enjoy tasty refreshments.

Ballots were mailed out in early March.

If you need a ballot, you can print a copy of the 2017 Director Ballot to turn in BEFORE the meeting begins.


Join the MCIA Board of Directors

Every year about one half of the potentially twenty-three Board of Directors seats
are up for election. We encourage all of our owners to consider taking on this
important role in ensuring each section is represented. If you are interested in
running for one of these board positions, the following is what you will
need to know.


Board member responsibilities:

  • The members of the Board of Directors are required to follow the Code of Ethics (found on the Meyerland website/About MCIA/Board of Directors)
  • Mandatory board meetings are held on the second Monday of every month and usually last between one and two hours.
  • There are two and sometimes three additional events annually all Directors are required to attend and assist at (such as the Annual Meeting or Afternoon in the Park).
  • Board members discuss and determine appropriate actions to take regarding financial, legal, management and contract issues (such as building annual budgets, enforcing of the association documents, and establishing and/or updating sound rules and policies, among other things).
  • Board members must participate in, and guide, committees ensuring appropriate actions are taken to support that which is in the best interest of the association membership.

Additional dates you will be required to attend events:

Please note that the election of the Board of Directors will take place on Thursday, March 23, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. at Lovett Elementary. Attendance at this Annual Meeting by those running for a board seat is not mandatory.

Communicating your candidacy:

Should you choose to run for a board seat in your section, you will need to email your intent to the MCIA secretary, at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Open Board seats:

Area Flood Concerns

A meeting was held Thursday evening, Oct 27, at the ERJCC hosted by the Citizens Solution to Houston Flooding.  Both Mayor Pro Tem Ellen Cohen and Keynote speaker Chief Resilience Office Steve Costello addressed a group of approximately 100 area residents.  Mr. Costello presented his plans to tackle the problem of flooding in the area then stayed after for over an hour to answer questions from the audience.  He stated that he is a “one man show” but he will respond personally to all communications he receives regarding topics he can supply the answer to and will share the request with others in cases where he does not have those answers.  

Below is his contact information.  Please reach out to him with your flood concern.
