4. It would be the smart thing to do.

It's also called "returning to greenspace". FEMA has a Hazard Mitigation Grant Program that funds property buyouts through local agencies. http://www.fema.gov/application-development-process/hazard-mitigation-grant-programs-frequently-ask-questions#2

FEMA is limited to allocate 15% of overall funding (by state and disaster) so $400 million sounds roughly in the ballpark. The program also funds other projects, too, though, and $400 million will not go far in property acquisition in this part of the country. Not far at all.
