The programme of flood and coastal erosion risk management works for all risk management authorities during 2013/14 and beyond.
Programme of works 2013/14
We are responsible for allocating central government funding to schemes that protect houses from flooding or coastal erosion. Flood and coastal erosion risk management Grant in Aid (FCRM GiA) is available for all risk management authorities (Environment Agency, local authorities and internal drainage boards). Under the partnership funding approach, most schemes have multiple sources of funding. This provides an opportunity for communities to progress schemes that otherwise would not happen by raising contributions.

What does the programme show?
To help you understand when we expect a scheme or project to take place, we have used a colour code system. Only schemes with a green or blue status will be live in 2013/14.
- Green: Schemes expected to spend FCRM GiA and/or contributions in 2013/14.
- Blue: Local Authority or Internal Drainage Board projects expected to spend FCRM GiA and/or contributions in 2013/14.
- Amber: schemes expected to spend FCRM GiA and/or contributions between 2014/15 and 2017/18 and onwards.
- Red: schemes not expected to spend FCRM GiA and/or contributions before 2018/19 because they are not ready to start, need to demonstrate better value for money or find additional contributions.
Funding local priority projects
The 12 Regional Flood & Coastal Committees (RFCCs) in England play an important local role in guiding flood and coastal risk management activities within catchments and along the coast. They have advised and approved the programme of work for their area. RFCCs also raise local levies to fund local priority projects and work in partnership with others.
Schemes starting construction during 2013/14
You can also download a list of all the schemes we expect to start construction during 2013/14.
Defra have made an additional £120m of FCRM GiA available to accelerate existing schemes and fund additional schemes. We will use £60m to accelerate existing schemes in the programme. We will use the remaining £60m as contributions towards schemes that provide both FCRM benefit and local economic growth.
When complete, we expect the schemes to reduce the risk of flooding to over 34,000 houses, help create 30,000 jobs and support development of 400ha of land (subject to compliance with sustainable development requirements). You can download a list of the schemes which will provide local economic growth.
Flood and coastal erosion risk management schemes map
The flood and coastal erosion risk management schemes for all risk management authorities during 2013/14 will be available on an interactive map. We will update this page in the spring.
For information about any of the schemes in this programme, please contact your local Environment Agency office by calling our National Customer Contact Centre (NCCC) on 03708 506 506 or by email.
How do we allocate funding?
We allocate FCRM GiA using the partnership funding approach. More information is available on our website.
