Flood Mitigation in Brazoria County

A Resilient Community

Lake Jackson Home Flooding

Brazoria County is no stranger to flooding in recent years. Record Brazos and San Bernard River levels following Hurricane Harvey and other heavy rain events have been a repeated threat to surrounding communities. Columbia Lakes, Mallard Lakes, Great Lakes, Holiday Lakes, Riverside Estates, Buffalo Camp, and the Bar X Ranch subdivisions have been among those who were hit hardest.

 

 

Flood Mitigation Grants For Brazoria

As part of an effort to stop the continuous cycle of loss for the families and expense to Federal, City, State, and County resources, mitigation grants have been approved in Brazoria County to include home elevation grants. The process began in 2018, and in February 2020, FEMA awarded $8.9 million to Brazoria County to elevate 70 flood-prone homes in the area. 

Flood Mitigation Assistance Program Cycle

The Flood Mitigation Assistance Program for Brazoria County opened the cycle on September 29th, 2020.  For those communities and homeowners who are approved to take part and receive funding for elevation or reconstruction of homes, there will be a stage in the process where FEMA qualified contractors are presented to them. The approved contractors will meet with homeowners and are expected to explain and quote their services to help elevate or reconstruct the selected homes. During this time, it’s good to get to know your potential contractors and the history that they have behind them performing these complicated processes. Even if your community is located outside of Brazoria County or you are not eligible for a grant, we’ve provided a checklist to use when you meet with your home elevation contractors.

We have a great checklist that gives you questions that are important to think about when choosing your contractor for home elevation.
