Statewide Flood Control Program

The Statewide Flood Control Program is designed to help solve flood problems through an active, innovative approach. This Program uses state funds allocated each year by the Legislature to assist in the construction of flood control infrastructure. Eligible projects for consideration must reduce existing flood damages. Potential projects include measures to reduce or eliminate the incidence of flooding or damages in specific area; for example, channel modifications;​ levee, canal, and spillway construction; stormwater detention; flood proofing of structure; regulation of floodplains; relocation assistance; or other structural or non-structural measures.
