FEMA's Building Resilient Infrastructure and Communities (BRIC) grant program is investing $1.16 billion in local communities as they undertake hazard mitigation projects. Electric cooperatives have an opportunity to partner with state, local and tribal governments to implement mitigation projects that promote community resilience. Electricity is essential to safeguarding the public safety and underpins much of the ability of communities to operate. The more resilient the electricity system the fewer disaster-caused outages and the faster the community recovery. Join NRECA on Tuesday, August 2 from 1:00-2:00 p.m. ET to learn more about the available funding, who's eligible to apply and how to access grant funding.
