Subject: RE: ANOTHER OPTION FOR FLOODED PROPERTIES--FEDERAL GOV SHOULD CONSIDER BUYING PEOPLE OUT
Paul –
 
As you are aware, the Greenburgh All-Hazards Mitigation Plan (AHMP) is currently in FEMA’s hands awaiting approval.  Once this plan is approved and adopted by the town, federal mitigation grants are available for eligible mitigation projects in the community, including property elevations and buyouts.   Significant mitigation grant funding is currently available, and more will become available in the wake of Irene and continued flooding.
 
The time to work with interested property owners is now.  I would be glad to discuss this with you and the Town further.
 
Please note that Chief DeCarlo and I had discussed potential mitigation grant projects in the Town with Engineering during preparation of the AHMP.   I just became aware of the mitigation RFP referenced below, however after the proposal submission date.   If there is any information or other support we can provide towards this effort, please feel free to contact us. 
 
Thank you.
