BRIC DTA services can include broad planning and capacity-building support, community engagement and communications, and partnership building, as well as hands-on technical assistance in mitigation alternatives development, project design (including engineering and cost estimation), application assistance, financing strategies, grants writing and grants management.

To apply, communities and tribal nations should send a request through the online submission BRIC DTA Request Form and email it to  There is no requirement for a previous BRIC grant sub-application or award, or an approved hazard mitigation plan, to be considered for participation.
