By Newsroom America Feeds at 13 Mar 09:59

DICKINSON, Texas – “I got tired of being flooded,” said Claire Rhoads, a resident of Dickinson, Texas. After watching her home flood eight times, Rhoads used funds from the FEMA Hazard Mitigation Assistance program (HMA) to elevate her home of 37 years.

HMA helps communities, and homeowners like Rhoads, implement hazard mitigation measures following a major disaster declaration. The assistance program, administered by the state, helps enact mitigation measures that reduce the risk of loss of life and property from future disasters.
