Combined Contributions by FFTF Partners

FFTF partners are working together to support the recovery of floodplain functions and protect the health and safety of communities around floodplains. Working independently and collaboratively, FFTF partners seek and acquire funding from multiple sources, including federal, state, and local grants, rate-based fees and taxes, and private foundations. Partners provide match funds in many cases and use existing grants to leverage additional funds where possible. Together, the combined investment of all FFTF efforts serves as an indicator of progress toward the shared goals of the FFTF program. In 2020, partners contributed over $10 million toward FFTF activities, bringing their total combined contributions to over $70 million since FFTF was formed in 2013.
