Grants to Wisconsin municipalities, metropolitan sewerage districts, and tribes for flood mitigation projects. Funding is intended to acquire and develop property to minimize both flooding and the environmental and structural damages caused by flooding. Eligible uses of funds include the acquisition of property and vacant land, structure removal, flood proofing, riparian restoration, and administrative support.
Recognizing the responsibility to protect life, health, and property from flood damages, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources offers this grant assistance package to all cities, villages, towns, tribal governments, and metropolitan sewerage districts concerned with municipal flood control management. This grant program is not intended to be an emergency relief program and instead a way to proactively mitigate the impacts of a changing climate; reduce flood hazard vulnerabilities; and improve the resilience and preparedness of Wisconsin municipalities.
Assistance is provided through the availability of two types of grants: acquisition and development grants aid in the acquisition of property or vacant land, structure removal, flood control construction or development, riparian restoration and/or mapping activities; and supported with local assistance grants to aid in administrative support activities.
