BRIC Program Explained

BRIC: Expanding the Concepts of Federal Pre-Disaster Mitigation, by Elizabeth Zimmerman.

BRIC was created as Section 1234 of the Disaster Recovery Reform Act of 2018, which will replace the Pre-Disaster Mitigation Grant Program. BRIC is built upon lessons learned from that program. BRIC is funded based on a formula of obligations from the DRF from the previous year for all active disasters, not just one disaster. The percentage for BRIC is 6 percent and is available nationwide. Another difference is when the funding is available, BRIC is pre-disaster versus HMGP is post-disaster.
