The Flood Hazard Mitigation Implementation (FHMI) Program is intended to help fund projects such as property protection measures, floodplain reclamation, public infrastructure protection and property buyout/relocation.
Most projects must be identified through a Local Flood Analysis (LFA) conducted in Watershed municipalities by consultants funded by New York City Department of Environmental Protection's Stream Management Program, or consultants engaged through other flood response programs.
Municipalities with completed LFAs may apply to the CWC for funds to implement projects recommended in those analysis. Interested municipalities should first contact the Stream Management Program partner (generally Soil & Water Conservation Districts) in their county for information on funding for Local Flood Analysis.
A related program was approved by the CWC Board of Directors in December 2014. The Sustainable Communities Planning Program, part of the Local Technical Assistance Program, is intended to fund revisions to local zoning codes or zoning maps or to upgrade comprehensive plans in order to identify areas within those municipalities that can serve as new locations for residences and/or businesses to be moved after purchase under the voluntary NYC Flood Buyout Program. Grants of up to $20,000 are available through this program. For more information on flood hazard mitigation programs and related stream projects, visit
