Floodplain Management, Protection, and Risk Awareness Grant Program

Proposition 68 logo

Proposition 68 funds the FMPRA Grant Program

The Floodplain Management, Protection and Risk Awareness (FMPRA) Grant Program supports local agency efforts to prepare for flooding by providing financial assistance for flood risk reduction activities related to stormwater flooding, mudslides, and flash floods. The Program supports both the Public Safety Initiative announced by Governor Brown's Administration in February 2017 and the Headwaters to Floodplains (H2F) Flood Safety Partnership Program.

The program was established in 2019 by the State Legislature and Governor Gavin Newsom through Assembly Bill 74, which also authorized the use of funds from Proposition 68: The California Drought, Water, Parks, Climate, Coastal Protection, and Outdoor Access For All Fund Act of 2018 of Senate Bill No. 5. $25 million is currently available for the program.
