Types of Grants

Grant funds are available for pre and post emergency or disaster related projects. These funds support critical recovery initiatives, innovative research and many other programs. Grants are the principal funding mechanism FEMA uses to commit and award federal funding to eligible state, local, tribal, territorial, certain private non-profits, individuals and institutions of higher learning.

We are continually working to improve how we support you in this process.

How to Get a Grant

Each grant has different eligibility requirements and application process.

  1. Find a grant that meets your need or supports your project.
  2. Read through the eligibility requirements and application process.
  3. If the grant has a cost share with the applicant or recipient, evaluate if you can afford it.
  4. Determine your applicant type. (ex. state or non-state, applicant or sub-applicant)
  5. Complete a benefit-cost analysis, if needed.
  6. Submit application.

Read about the grants lifecycle from Grants.gov to learn more about what to do before you submit a grant application, how grants are awarded and what to do after an award has been given.
