MORE INFORMATION

Flood Control Assistance Account Program (FCAAP)

History of Grant Program:

Washington has had a Legislatively-established flood control maintenance program for more than 50 years. In 1984, the state Legislature established the Flood Control Assistance Account Program to assist local jurisdictions in comprehensive planning and flood control maintenance efforts. This is one of very few state programs in the country that provides grant funding to local governments for flood plain management planning and implementation actions. The account is funded at $4 million per state biennium, unless modified by the state legislature. Projects include planning, maintenance projects, feasibility studies, match for federal projects, and emergency projects.

However, due to state budget reductions, Ecology will be unable to offer Flood Control Assistance Account Program (FCAAP) grants through June 30, 2015. We believe this is a temporary situation and Ecology will be able to resume offering grant funding in the next biennum. There is limited funding available for emergency projects.
