Collaborating for Funding and Policy Improvements

The Funding & Policy Action Group serves as the go-to convenor for floodplain funding and policy efforts across the state and to leverage current momentum for integrated floodplain management into innovative approaches that can better position partners for funding, address barriers to implementation, and improve coordination across all levels of government.

The F&PAG works to:

  • foster trust, collaboration and partnership across state and federal agency efforts
  • support advocacy for the state capital grant program and increased ease in synergistic funding sources
  • provide clarity on funding programs and project competitiveness
  • and facilitate policy change to address local concerns through legislation, advocacy and partnerships.

“I can honestly say that when we got funding to acquire the highest risk properties on the Canyon Creek alluvial fan I thought that mitigating the risk to human life was probably the best we could ever do with a bad situation. While some salmon funding did come through, it was not near enough. The Floodplains by Design funding came at the critical time and now both the fish and residents of Glacier Springs are happy and safer.”
