Grants available for dam and floodplain projects
The maximum amount available per grant will be based on project scoring and the total amount of funds requested. All grants are reimbursements and require a 50 percent match. The fund is managed by the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation.
Dam safety grants are available for private dam owners and local governments. They can be used for break inundation zone analysis, mapping and digitalization; emergency action plans; incremental damage analysis; and engineering costs related to dam repairs.
