Hazard Mitigation Assistance Program Digest May 2014

Main Content
FEMA offers three Hazard Mitigation Assistance (HMA) grant programs – the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HGMP), the Pre-Disaster Mitigation (PDM) program and the Flood Mitigation Assistance (FMA) program – to help States, Territories, Indian Tribal governments, local communities, private non-profits and businesses implement cost-effective, long-term mitigation measures for all natural hazards. Supporting this endeavor is most effective when all stakeholders share in a mutual understanding of program purpose, concepts, terminology and procedures. As part of this effort, FEMA has produced this digest of HMA program operational terms and references. The HMA Program Digest is intended to be an easy-to-read, easy-to use, brief summary of the basic HMA program elements. While the HMA Program Digest is primarily intended for those unfamiliar with the HMA programs, it also may serve as a reference for employees, applicants, and other stakeholders with many years of experience with the programs. Because the digest is not exhaustive, either in topics or in detail, information should be verified with the FEMA HMA Unified Program Guidance and FEMA HMA program officials before becoming the basis for decision making.
