The Building Resilient Infrastructure and Communities (BRIC) grant program is an annual FEMA Hazard Mitigation Assistance Grant funded by FEMA and administered through a partnership with the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency (MEMA).

The priorities for the program are to incentivize natural hazard risk reduction activities that mitigate risk to public 

infrastructure and disadvantaged communities; mitigate risk to one or more community lifelines; incorporate nature-based solutions; enhance climate resilience and adaptation; and to increase funding to applicants that facilitate the adoption and enforcement of the latest published editions of building codes.

Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency has the authority and responsibility for the collection and review of the Building Resilient Infrastructure and Communities Program sub-applications, recommending technically feasible and cost-effective sub-applications to FEMA and providing pass-thru funding for FEMA approved and awarded project grants to eligible sub-applicants.
