Deadline Approaching to Apply for FEMA’s BRIC Program
The International Code Council is available to help you apply for BRIC grant supporting code-related activities.
Now in its third year, the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Building Resilient Infrastructure and Communities (BRIC) program is set to award nearly $2.3 billion for pre-disaster mitigation grants. BRIC prioritizes the adoption and enforcement of hazard-resistant building codes and makes funding available for adoption activities. This is an opportunity for jurisdictions to submit applications for programs and services to improve their code adoption, enforcement and operations.
The Federal deadline to apply for the BRIC program is January 27, 2023. Since state and local governments must apply through their state emergency management offices, many states have fixed sub-application deadlines that precede the application deadline. Click here or contact your State Hazard Mitigation Officer (SHMO) to confirm your state’s deadline. Click here to locate your SHMO’s contact information.
