The Flood Maintenance Assistance Program (FMAP) is a new program that provides State funds for eligible maintenance activities to Local Maintaining Agencies (LMAs) and Maintenance Areas (MAs). This program will help ensure that State Plan of Flood Control facilities are properly maintained and have sufficient resources, including funding, to meet applicable federal regulations and Operation and Maintenance (O&M) manual requirements. 

FMAP has released the Program Guidelines, the OMRR&R Agreement, and is soliciting proposals for funding assistance. The guidelines and the Proposal Solicitation Package provide details about the type of work that is eligible for funding and how to submit a proposal for funding. 



Deadlines for submitting proposals:

  • January 25, 2019 – First submittal date for fiscal year (FY) 2018-19 funding
  • February 22, 2019 – Second submittal date for FY 2018-19 funding
  • March 25, 2019 – Final program application submittal date for FY 2018-19 funding
