Hazard Mitigation Grant Program

Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) - HMGP provides grants to states and local governments to implement long-term hazard mitigation measures after a Major Disaster Declaration.

  • Eligibilty - Eligible applicants include state, territorial, and local governments, Federally-recognized tribes or tribal organizations, and certain nonprofit organizations. Individual homeowners and businesses may not apply directly to the program; however, a community may apply on their behalf.
  • What is it for - Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) funds may be used to fund projects that will reduce or eliminate the losses from future disasters. Projects must provide a long-term solution to a problem. A project’s potential savings must be more than the cost of implementing the project. Funds may be used to protect either public or private property, or to purchase property that has been subjected to, or is in danger of, repetitive damage.
  • What should an application look like - Visit R6 Hazard Mitigation Assistance - the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) - to view the elements: Scope of Work, Alternatives, Maintenance agreement, Supporting documents, Environmental, Work Schedule, Work Schedule Example, Cost Break Down, Making your Match, and Standard Form-424/ Assurances
  • Timing - On average, it will take several months to a year for HMGP funding to be available. Once it is, there is a specific process, outlined below, that outlines the timing of the application process for communities. 

Ongoing Mitigation Grants

  • Flood Mitigation Assistance Grants (FMA) - FMA provides funding to States, Territories, federally-recognized tribes and local communities for projects and planning that reduces or eliminates long-term risk of flood damage to structures insured under the NFIP. FMA funding is also available for management costs.
  • Pre-Disaster Mitigation Grants (PDM) - PDM awards planning and project grants to assist States, U.S. Territories, Federally-recognized tribes, and local communities.  It provides opportunities for raising public awareness about reducing future losses before disaster strikes.
