Guidance on Property Acquisition and Relocation for the Purpose of Open Space

Main Content
Recent amendments to Title 44 of the Code of Federal Regulations added a new Part 80, Property Acquisition and Relocation for Open Space. More detailed guidance to assist with implementation of the provisions found in Part 80 has also been developed. This property acquisition and relocation guidance applies to all FEMA hazard mitigation grant programs. It is included in the FY09 Hazard Mitigation Assistance (HMA) Program Guidance at Section 2.3.13 and also governs this project type under the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) in place of previous desk reference sections. The property acquisition guidance section must be read in conjunction with the overall requirements for each grant program including the HMGP. The Part 80 rule and implementing property acquisition guidance are effective for all disasters declared on or after December 3rd, 2007 (12/03/2007).
