The 86th Texas Legislature in 2019 directed the Texas Water Development Board (TWDB) to develop a clearinghouse of information about state and federal flood planning, mitigation, and control programs that may serve as a source of funding for flood projects. This “information clearinghouse” site is a cooperative effort between the Texas General Land Office, the Texas Division of Emergency Management and the TWDB. The Flood Information Clearinghouse Committee, or FLICC, is a group of cooperating agencies that regularly meet to review funding inquiries submitted to the committee and to coordinate the use of state and federal funding for flood mitigation projects. These agencies include:

Concurrent with this effort, the TWDB is developing a stakeholder-driven regional flood planning process that will result in Texas’ first state flood plan by 2024. For information on this process, visit TWDB’s flood website.
