WATERBURY, Vt. (AP) - Grants are once again available for Vermont communities that want to lessen the potential damage from a future disaster, such as flooding.

The Vermont Division of Emergency Management and Homeland Security is accepting a new round of Hazard Mitigation Grant Program applications.

Such grants cover up to 75 percent of the costs associated with projects such as flood-proofing of public buildings, culvert replacement and riverbank stabilization.

The deadline for applications is May 2.
