Pre-Disaster Mitigation Grant Program

Main Content

The Pre-Disaster Mitigation (PDM) program provides funds for hazard mitigation planning and projects on an annual basis. The PDM program was put in place to reduce overall risk to people and structures, while at the same time, also reducing reliance on federal funding if an actual disaster were to occur.

Please see the chart below for information on how to apply to the PDM program.

This picture is a hazard Mitigation Assistance application submission flowchart.  On the top of the chart it says, Individuals and homeowners may not apply for funding through eligible subapplicants.  Below that is a chart of an upside pyramid with 3 levels.  The first level is the subapplicant level.  There are four rectangles.  There is a rectangle for Tribal Governments, State Agencies, Tribal Agencies and Local Communities.  There is an arrow pointing down to the second level, which is the Applicant level.  There are 3 circles on that level.  There is a circle for Territories, Tribal Government and States. Below the circle, there is an arrow that points to an upside triangle that says FEMA.
