FLOOD MITIGATION MEASURES FOR THE 

HISTORIC STOCKADE DISTRICT

ABOUT THE PROJECT

The City of Schenectady has been awarded funding to work with the community in determining a preferred approach to mitigate the impact of flooding in the Stockade neighborhood and assist property owners to preserve their homes. Funding is provided by the Federal Emergency Management Association (FEMA) Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) through the New York Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Services (DHSES.) 

The project is divided into two phases.  Funds for Phase One: Comprehensive Mitigation Analysis in the amount of $1,206,000 have been awarded. Phase One will evaluate existing conditions, evaluate alternatives and recommend a preferred mitigation solution. Once Phase One is complete, FEMA will consider awarding just over $7,545,000 for construction in Phase Two. It is anticipated that Phase One will be complete by the end of 2019.
