National Disaster Mitigation Program Funding

The National Disaster Mitigation Program (NDMP) is currently accepting proposals from local governments to manage flood risks and associated costs. Interested parties have until 4:00 p.m. on October 7, 2016 to submit a proposal and supporting documentation to Emergency Management BC.

The NDMP includes four project streams:

  • Risk Assessments
  • Flood Mapping
  • Mitigation Planning
  • Investments in Non-Structural and Small-Scale Structural Mitigation Projects

Prior to submitting a project proposal, it is suggested that local governments review the components of the NDMP, including program guidelines, to determine if they are eligible for funding and the documentation required for proposals in each project stream. Completed proposals and supporting documentation may be submitted to NDMP.

While provinces and territories are the eligible recipients of this federal support, they are also able to redistribute funding to other entities, including local governments. In British Columbia, Emergency Management BC is tasked with administering NDMP funding received from Public Safety Canada.
