Private Property Adaptation

Are you concerned about flooding on your property?

In 2022, the City of Miami Beach launched the Fight The Flood Private Property Adaptation (PPA) Program, a competitive grant for residential and commercial property owners in Miami Beach.

Selected applicants may qualify to receive up to $20,000 in funding to go towards a property risk assessment, in addition to the design and construction of resilient flood mitigation improvements.* The improvements can include a variety of projects, such as floodproofing, home elevation, green infrastructure, and more. We want to help Miami Beach residents begin to adapt to the effects of climate change, like storm surges and increased rainfall, along with rising groundwater and sea levels. We look forward to working together with our residents to build a more resilient Miami Beach.

*All applications will be reviewed, evaluated, and prioritized according to available funds. Application does not guarantee funding.


Our first cohort has just completed Phase I of the program and the application period will reopen in 2024! If you are interested to in receiving further communications about future PPA and other flood mitigation opportunities, email us at!
