eGrants System

The Mitigation eGrants system consists of two parts:

1. The External Mitigation eGrants System for Subgrant Applicants, or Subapplicants, and Grant Applicants, or Applicants, is available on the Internet through the FEMA Grants Portal

2. The Internal Mitigation eGrants System for FEMA users is available on the FEMA Intranet

Grant Applicants and Subgrant Applicants use the External eGrants system to create and manage applications for Federal assistance. 

FEMA uses the Internal eGrants system to review and approve applications for mitigation assistance.

eGrants Users

Eligible Grant Applicants for the HMA grant programs are States, the District of Columbia, U. S. Territories, and Federally-recognized Native American Tribal governments. Each State, Territory, Commonwealth, or Native American Tribal government shall designate one agency to serve as the Applicant.

Local governments are considered Subgrant Applicants and must apply to their Applicant State/Territory.
