Eight structures were deemed ineligible for the federal hazard mitigation program and 24 applications are still pending.
Of those, FEMA has committed $12.8 million. The pending acquisitions total $6.1 million.
Earlier this week, state officials agreed to help buy out five of the properties that were rejected by FEMA.
FEMA's hazardous mitigation program pays a portion of the pre-flood value of structures in areas likely to be hit again by future flooding. The structures are then torn down so they can't be damaged again.
