S.3418 – Safeguarding Tomorrow through Ongoing Risk Mitigation Act of 2020 (STORM Act)

January 1, 2021

The Safeguarding Tomorrow through Ongoing Risk Mitigation Act of 2020 (STORM Act), enacted January 1st, 2021, amends the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act (42 U. S. C. 5131) to authorize grants to establish hazard mitigation revolving loan fund programs. The programs are intended to fund projects that mitigate natural hazards including wildfires, earthquakes, drought, severe storm events, erosion, storm surges, and high water levels. The goal of the funding is to support risk reduction for local governments by decreasing loss of life and property, insurance costs, and the necessity for future federal disaster relief.

Broward County Resiliency Standards for Flood Protection: Broward County Code of Ordinances Article XXV, Chapter 39.

February 13, 2020

Adopted by the Broward County Board of Commissioners in early 2020, Broward County’s new flood protection standards establish, and account for sea-level rise in, baseline elevation and maintenance standards for coastal and shoreline flood mitigation infrastructure for tidally-affected communities in the County. Broward County adopted a new policy (2. 21. 7) in the County Land Use Plan requiring tidally-influenced municipalities to adopt a local ordinance consistent with the regional standards, which were incorporated into county code as a model ordinance.
