An opportunity for more relief is on the way for Westport homeowners who have suffered repeated flood-related losses.
The Town of Westport today announced its intent to apply to FEMA’s Flood Mitigation Assistance (FMA) program for mitigation of structures in its coastal flood zones.
The program provides funds for projects to reduce or eliminate risk of flood damage to buildings that are insured under the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), said Andew Kingsbury, Westport’s fire chief and emergency management director.
He said eligible activities include structural elevations, property acquisitions and structure demolition, dry flood proofing (for nonresidential owners only), and mitigation reconstruction.
