Risk Informed Funding
Topic 5: Risk Informed Funding
FEMA is exploring the various options for developing a risk informed methodology for grant funding. How should FEMA prioritize funding for BRIC, both for allocation to states, territories, and tribes on the national level, as well as, on the project level through competitive priorities?
FEMA seeks your opinions on:
- What sources of risk data does your community use for prioritizing grant funding for disaster mitigation activities
- What limitations and risks you see in using risk data to make funding award decisions to states, territories, and tribes versus a nationwide competitive program comparing project applications
- How can the risk data that is available in your community be improved to better inform actions that can be taken to improve disaster resiliency
