     Poquoson receives pre-disaster mitigation grant from the state
The Virginia Department of Emergency Management (VDEM) recently awarded a $459,519 grant to Poquoson to help elevate three properties in the city's flood plain.

The award is part of $2.2 million in federal grants the state received to help mitigate flood damage along its waterways, according to a news release.

Municipalities receiving the grant can use the funds to physically raise existing structures to the base flood elevation level or higher, the news release said, or they can acquire the properties to have them physically demolished ultimately converting the land into open space.

"These funds will protect vulnerable homes by reducing, or even eliminating the effects of repeated flooding," said VDEM State Coordinator Jeff Stern. "We partner with each locality to protect lives and property through these grants."
