Please join massFM to learn more about the USACE Flood Plain Management Services Program Fiscal Year 2022 Call for Proposals. Sheila Warren, the NAE Silver Jackets Coordinator for the USACE New England District (NAE) Planning Division will be presenting. A portion of FY22 Flood Plain Management Services (FPMS) funding is apportioned to interagency nonstructural work.  Interagency work promotes participation by U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) staff in small efforts undertaken in conjunction with other partners in order to achieve flood risk management benefits that could not be achieved by any one party alone.  The current Call for Proposals invites proposals for that purpose, with a focus on approaches that utilize the agency’s expertise in engineering to provide local communities and States with technical and planning assistance regarding the development and implementation of nonstructural approaches to manage and reduce flood risks. 

  • This is not a grant program, it is technical assistance to the non-federal partners.

  • At least 2 governmental partners beyond USACE must be involved in a proposal

  • Non-governmental partners can also be included as is helpful; program is not limited to governmental partners-

  • Proposal must seek to reduce flood risk through nonstructural means; these approaches reduce flood consequences, as opposed to altering the nature or extent of a flood hazard.
