Flood Mitigation Assistance Program

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) provides Flood Mitigation Assistance funds to assist states, territories, local and federally-recognized Indian tribal governments to implement measures that reduce or eliminate the long-term risk of flood damage to buildings, manufactured homes, and other structures insured under the National Flood Insurance Program. FEMA announced a new round of funding for Fiscal Year 2022 totaling $160 million. The application period for this round of funding will be open from September 30, 2021 to January 28, 2022 at 3:00 P.M. ET.

The Fiscal Year 2022 funding notice for the Flood Mitigation Assistance program adopts the Center for Disease Control's Social Vulnerability Index as an additional scoring criteria to rank applications for proposed projects and activities. This new criteria prioritizes funding for the disadvantaged communities by awarding extra points to projects that affect underserved populations.

Maryland Coastal Atlas

The Coastal Atlas is an online mapping and planning tool that allows state and local decision-makers to visually analyze and explore data for coastal and ocean planning activities. The site provides shoreline mapping data for shoreline and flood planning in Maryland. The maps are based on erosion, storm inundation and sea level rise data developed from fifty years of observations, and display future shoreline positions up to fifty years in the future. The data available through the Coastal Atlas includes physical characteristics, human uses and ecological resources.

NCAR Nested Regional Climate Model

The National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) has created computer models to study many aspects of atmospheric and earth system phenomena. The Nested Regional Climate Model (NRCM) combines the strengths of NCAR's Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) model and NCAR's Community Climate System Model (CCSM) into an instrument that will improve the understanding and prediction of regional climate variability and change. In particular, embedding WRF within CCSM will allow scientists to resolve processes that occur at the regional scale, as well as the influence of those processes on the large-scale climate, thereby improving the fidelity of climate change simulations and their utility for local and regional planning.

Integrated Assessment for Effective Climate Change Strategies in New York State

The “Integrated Assessment for Effective Climate Change Adaptation Strategies in New York State" project was undertaken by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) ClimAID science team.   The vulnerability assessment considers the effects of climate change on New York, including rising sea levels, increasing temperatures, and changing weather patterns. The project draws upon both local experience and scientific knowledge by involving numerous stakeholders in eight key sectors: agriculture, communications, ecosystems, energy, ocean coastal zones, public health, transportation, and water resources.

Coastal Zone Management Estuarine Research Reserves Project Grants

Coastal Zone Management Estuarine Research Reserves project grants are awarded to coastal states, including those that border the Great Lakes and non-continental U. S. territories, to assist in the development, acquisition, monitoring, research, education, operation and facilities construction for National Estuarine Research Reserves. These grants are provided for the purpose of creating natural field laboratories to gather data and make studies of, and educate people about the natural and human processes occurring within the estuaries of the coastal zone.

FEMA Community Assistance Program - State Support Services Element

The Federal Emergency Management Agency's (FEMA's) Community Assistance Program - State Support Services Element (CAP-SSSE) provides, through a State grant mechanism, a means to ensure that communities participating in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) are achieving flood loss reduction goals of the NFIP. CAP-SSSE funds are to be used by States to provide technical assistance to NFIP communities, to evaluate community implementation/ performance of NFIP floodplain management activities, and to build State and community floodplain management expertise and capacity.

Community Resource Inventory - South Carolina

A community resource inventory is an online mapping atlas of the natural and cultural resources in a community, along with human dimensions information. The human dimensions information includes land parcels, urban areas, and streets and highways. For South Carolina, the Community Resource Inventory-South Carolina (CRI-SC) tool presents these data in an online map for users without traditional geographic information system capabilities. Having a detailed set of inventory maps can assist those who are interested in planning for the effects of sea-level rise in South Carolina.
