TWDB - Flood Protection Planning Grant
The Texas Water Development Board (TWDB) recently posted a request for applications for the Flood Protection Planning Grant. Up to $900,000 has been authorized for this grant application cycle. Typical awards are in the $100,000 to $150,000 range.
This grant can be used to study watersheds in Texas. The study can include hydrologic and hydraulic (H&H) modeling, public input, and the development of recommended strategies to address flooding. The grant provides Texas money for up to 50 percent of the cost to develop the plan. Eligible applicants include political subdivisions with the legal authority to plan for and abate flooding. Applicants must participate in the National Flood Insurance Program.
Applications are due to the TWDB by noon on Jan. 22, 2014. Please contact Freese and Nichols if you have any questions about a potential study that might qualify for this funding. We have successfully assisted multiple entities in procuring Flood Protection Planning Grant funds. Jill Trevino is available to answer your questions and discuss project ideas.
