You may or may not be surprised to know that there are parts of San Francisco that experience flooding during the winter heavy rains.
While San Francisco had a dry winter, we also know Mother Nature is unpredictable. The summertime is the best time to flood-proof your property. The SFPUC offers a Floodwater Grant for property owners that experience flooding on their properties, reimbursing those eligible up to $100,000 to make property upgrades to minimize flood damage.
As you think about your summer plans, we encourage you to take action to make property improvements to minimize damage to your property before the next rainy season. Join the SFPUC’s FREE webinar on the Floodwater Grant on Wednesday, June 23 from 5:30-6:30 p.m. Hear from the team who will go over the basics of the grant to help you get started on your application and answer your questions.
During this webinar you will learn if you qualify, get ideas on the types of projects you can implement on your property, such as installing flood barriers, backflow preventers, regrading floors and more.
