Flood Mitigation


OHCD has the responsibility for the oversight and management of the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program in James City County. Its primary goal in flood mitigation is to elevate homes and equipment to keep them above flood waters. These efforts have resulted in successful completion of:

  • 2 VDEM Hazard Mitigation Grants;
  • 1 CDBG Disaster Recovery Grant; and,
  • 1 Application for the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program

OHCD routinely provides technical advice to interested property owners regarding flood mitigation options. The Department provides historical flood related data from previous project documents including surveys, soil evaluations, design work and project costs. Contact information is also provided for engineering, surveying and general contracting services that have been procured in the past.
