Tribal Funding, Mitigation and Planning Resources




Public and Individual Assistance Resources


If you, your family or your home were individually impacted by a major disaster, FEMA can help support your recovery. Find the disaster assistance and support services you need.

Governments and Private Non-Profits

If you work for a state, local, tribal or territorial government, or select private nonprofit organizations, get assistance in place to support your communities and constituents.

Tribal Mitigation Planning Resources

Tribal mitigation plans look at natural hazards that may affect tribal governments and suggest actions to reduce losses from those hazards. Tribal governments need to develop and adopt hazard mitigation plans to receive non-emergency disaster funds from FEMA assistance programs. View all hazard mitigation grants.
