Webinar: Statewide Flood Plan Update

May 23 @ 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM CDT


In the wake of historic flooding in Texas, the 86th Texas Legislature passed Senate Bill 8 in 2019 that authorized and established the regional and state flood planning processes. The 86th legislature also established the Flood Infrastructure Fund (FIF) where only projects identified in the Texas State Flood Plan will be eligible for funding from this new source. With the first cycle of regional flooding planning well underway, communities can take advantage of this opportunity to bring new flood mitigation resources to their jurisdictions. This presentation will provide an update on the Texas regional flood planning process and offer perspectives from across the state, highlighting ways that communities can be strategic in their involvement and maximize their chances for future funding of flood studies and mitigation projects.
