Have you checked out, below gist gives an example of how to call the API, you can use nifi to enrich the data periodically before you join.

@Sonu Sonu

You can use FCC Conversion API to get fips code from lat & long

For example: http://data.fcc.gov/api/block/2010/find?latitude=40.0&longitude=-85

Also,

Please check out http://www.datasciencetoolkit.org/ a ready to use virtual machine(VM) for geocoding and reverse geocoding, it provides useful information including FIPS codes.

i hope it will help.
