Applications are not being accepted at this time.
We use pre-applications to screen potential Floodplains by Design (FbD) projects to evaluate if they are a good match for FbD grant funding. We have completed our review of applications for 20 different FbD projects. We are in the process of compiling the results and coordinating with our partners to create a final ranked list. This list will support Ecology’s Capital Budget Request for $70 million in FbD project funding for the 2021-23 Biennium. We will release this list in the near future.
The next round of FbD grant solicitation will not begin until fall 2021. We have posted extensive information about the FbD program and what makes a good project in our 2021-23 FbD grant funding guidelines. We strongly encourage future applicants to review these guidelines.
Funding is available for the following entities:
Local and tribal governments, port districts, flood control zone districts, flood control and diking and drainage districts, conservation districts, municipal and quasi-municipal corporations, and non-profits that are recognized by the IRS as tax-exempt.
Flood hazard reduction projects that also contain an ecosystem restoration aspect as outlined in the funding guidelines.
