Authorized by Section 203 of the Stafford Act, Building Resilient Infrastructure and Communities (BRIC) will support states, local communities, tribes and territories as they undertake hazard mitigation projects, reducing the risks they face from disasters and natural hazards. FMA is authorized by Section1366 of the National Flood Insurance Act of 1968, as amended (NFIA), 42 U.S.C. 4104c, with the goal of reducing or eliminating claims.; BRIC aims to implement projects that reduce risks posed by natural hazards to reduce future losses, by funding priority projects and activities. Priorities include risk reduction of both acute events and chronic stressors, driven by climate change, which are either observed or expected. To achieve these goals, for FY 2023 BRIC is prioritizing the following types of projects: infrastructure projects, projects that benefit disadvantaged communities as referenced in EO 14008, projects that incorporate nature-based solutions including those designed to reduce carbon emissions, climate change adaptation and resilience projects, and projects proposed by applicants who adopt and enforce mandatory Tribal-, territory-, or state-wide building codes based on the latest published editions of building codes. FEMA will measure the percent of dollars invested in these priorities, which will indicate that BRIC projects expect to meet the goal of reducing both risks posed by natural hazards and future losses. NOIs due to Cal OES via Engage Portal by October 27, 2023 Subapplications must be submitted in FEMA GO by December 13, 2023
