Helping communities
decrease flood risk

FloodWise Community Assistance is a free technical assistance program to decrease flood risk and strengthen communities.

Floods are the most common (and among the most dangerous) disasters in the United States, and they are getting worse. Yet local governments often struggle to find the time, resources, and funding needed to reduce flood risk. We are here to help your community find and implement projects that are effective, feasible, and beneficial.

The fact that the FloodWise team had all the expertise and could just jump right in really helped us. We didn’t know where to start and now we have a $4 million FEMA grant to get going.
