Building Resilient Infrastructure and Communities (BRIC)
Over the last several years, the U.S. has experienced an increase in extreme hazards – from hurricanes, floods, and earthquakes to wildfires and tornadoes – drastically affecting families, communities, businesses and the economy. As a result, governments have taken proactive steps to reduce risks associated with hazards through mitigation and other programs.
Developed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the BRIC
grant program supports state, local, territorial, and tribal communities with proactively implementing hazard mitigation and resilience projects to reduce the risks from disasters and natural hazards.
