2011 Flood Protection Incentive Program

The Flood Protection Incentive Program (FPIP) is a local, annually budgeted, flood mitigation program for at risk property owners. The goal of the program is to assist the individual homeowner in improving the level of basic flood protection and reducing the need for emergency measures.  The program has an annual budget of $100,000.  Once the budget has been depleted the program will be suspended until the next budget year.

  • Program maximum per property is capped at $12,000.00.
  • This program is not intended to provide protection to certifiable levels or to remove property from the regulatory floodplain.  Homeowners who participate in the program will not be eligible for removal from the flood plain.
  • Property owners (occupied) who meet the location eligibility criteria adjacent to Red River, a Coulee or unprotected legal drains (on the primary protection line) may competitively apply for the program.  There are stipulations.  Please read the 18 point program guidance under the incentive table.

Funding varies depending on the levee category. Please review the Flood Protection Incentive Program application, which is located on the lower portion of this page, for details.
