Description The Legislature established the state Flood Control Assistance Account (FCAA) in 1986 to help local and tribal governments plan for and reduce their flood risks. State law requires $4 million be transferred every biennium from the state General Fund to FCAA for flood-risk reduction activities. Although the amount of available funding diminished for more than a decade, Governor Inslee has included full FCAA funding in his 2021-23 proposed biennial budget. Restoring FCAA funding will give Ecology and its local partners the ability to use FCAA to prepare for and avoid flood damages.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
