City offers workshops, individual consultation to residents seeking flood mitigation assistance

flood mitigation assistance workshops

2022 Flood Mitigation Assistance application submittal will be compiled


On Monday, October 10, at 3:00pm, in coordination with its consultant Quality Engineering and Surveying (QES), the City of St. Augustine will offer a follow-up workshop for those residents currently participating in the FEMA 2022 Flood Mitigation Assistance funding application submittal.  The workshop will be held at the Galimore Community Center, located at 399 Riberia Street in Lincolnville.

Additionally, at 6:00pm, on Monday, October 10, in coordination with QES, the city will offer an introductory workshop for any homeowners who flooded in Hurricane Ian, or who have previously flooded but are not currently participating in the 2022 Flood Mitigation Assistance funding application submittal.  There will be a brief presentation of the FMA application process with ample time for questions and one-on-one discussions with the consultant.  This workshop also will be held at the Galimore Community Center, located at 399 Riberia Street in Lincolnville.

Homeowners who are not already participating in any of the city’s flood mitigation programs, are encouraged to send an email with their name, address, and phone number to fma@citystaug.com and a member of City staff will respond to discuss available programs.

On Tuesday, October 11, from 8:00am to 5:00pm, QES will be available for pre-scheduled, on-site visits with residents.  To speak directly with a QES team member in advance about storm damage, send an email to adaray@qesla.com

Every year there is an allocation of federal funding that can be applied for and reviewed by FEMA.  In fiscal year 2021 the FMA Program had $70M allocated towards community flood mitigation; however, funding in 2022 is anticipated to exceed that when the Notice of Funding is announced for the program.

For questions in advance of the workshop, contact Andy Daray, Project Coordinator for Quality Engineering and Surveying, LLC, at 225-698-1600 or send an email to adaray@qesla.com.
