Community Resilience – Flood Resilient Communities Fund Program

boats on flooded landA Program through the Department of Environmental Conservation & Vermont Emergency Management:

The Flood Resilient Communities Fund awards grants to mitigate flood hazards and reduce future flooding in Vermont, including buyouts of flood-vulnerable properties; conservation of vacant, at-risk parcels; and natural resource projects to restore floodplain access and flood storage. The program aims to reduce future public safety and water quality impacts of climate-related flood hazards. This is a voluntary program that will prioritize projects in communities and/or for homeowners with greatest economic need and projects that mitigate repetitive loss among low-income and marginalized portions of the population. This project is jointly managed by VEM and DEC.
