Flood Assistance Program - FAP

The Flood Assistance Program (FAP) acquires, relocates, or elevates structures located in the floodplain based on their risk of flooding. To be eligible, the home must:

  • Be located in the 100-year floodplain;
  • Have a finished floor elevation below the 100-year flood level;
  • Have been under construction before December 31, 1974.
There are three (3) types of assistance alternatives considered by the program.

  • Structure and property acquisition. This assistance involves the City buying your property and its improvements in order to eliminate the flooding damage.
  • Structure elevation. This assistance involves the City raising your structure so that floodwaters would no longer enter and cause flood damage.
  • Structure Relocation. This assistance involves relocating your structure to a location that is not subject to flood damage.
