We are seeking public comment regarding the FEMA Building Resilient Infrastructure and Communities (BRIC) Grant Applications for the Wexford Stormwater Pump Station and Jarvis Creek System Outfall.
FEMA Building Resilient Infrastructure and Communities (BRIC) Grant Application
Final Notice and Public Explanation of a Proposed Activity in a 100 Year Floodplain
The Town of Hilton Head Island has applied for Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Building Resilient Infrastructure and Communities (BRIC) grant funding through the South Carolina Emergency Management Division (SCEMD) as a sub-recipient. Funding for the proposed project will be conditional upon compliance with all applicable federal, tribal, state and local laws, regulations, flood plain standards, and permit requirements and conditions.
Under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), federal actions must be reviewed and evaluated for feasible alternatives and for social, economic, historic, environmental, legal, and safety considerations. Under Executive Order (EO) 11988 and EO 11990, FEMA is required to consider alternatives to, and to provide a public notice of, any proposed actions in or affecting floodplains or wetlands. EO 12898 also requires FEMA to provide the opportunity for public participation in the planning process and to consider potential impacts to minority and low-income populations. This notice may also fulfill requirements under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA).
