Thank you for your interest in the Silicon Valley Innovation Program's (SVIP's) Flood Data Collection & Analysis topic call virtual Industry Day. If you missed our event, here's a quick recap and next steps.

We are seeking technical capabilities to help the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), through its Federal Insurance and Mitigation Administration (FIMA), improve preparedness and response efforts after flooding occurs. SVIP is offering funding for early-stage startups with commercial technologies that are adaptable and capable to protect the homeland.  Applications must be able to describe alignment to at least one of the following technical topic areas.

  1. Data Sources: providing a variety of data related to flooding (e.g., named and unnamed storms, coastal flooding, overflow of inland or tidal waters, mudslides)
  2. Data Analytics: capabilities for both situational awareness and predictive analytics (e.g., near real time image of flooding event; past and current data for forecasting capabilities)

This opportunity is open to U.S. and international startups that meet the following requirements:

  • Fewer than 200 employees or full-time equivalents
  • Must not have been a party to any FAR-based contract and/or federally awarded grant (including the Small Business Innovation Research program) with a combined total of more than $1,000,000 in the past 12 months

Next Steps

Submission deadlines are May 4 and September 2, 2022, by 12:00 pm noon PT/3:00 pm ET.

Please email SVIP with your questions.
