The Flood Mitigation Assistance (FMA) program makes federal funds available to states, U.S. territories, Indian tribal governments, and local communities to reduce or eliminate the risk of repetitive flood damage to buildings and structures insured under the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). FEMA will distribute the available FY 20 FMA funding amount as follows:

FEMA may reduce the federal cost share of any planning subapplication that exceeds the statutory maximums.
