Statewide Grants


The Statewide Grants Branch administers programs that provide financial support to local entities for flood related projects. The Subventions Program reimburses local flood control agencies for a percentage of the costs of flood management projects while the Flood Protection Corridor Program manages direct expenditure projects as well as provides grants to local agencies and nonprofit organizations for implementing non-structural solutions for reducing flood risks. The Local Levee Assistance Program provides funds to assist local flood management agencies to evaluate and perform urgently needed repairs to levees and other flood control facilities that are critically eroded or unstable.
