Hazard Mitigation Assistance Grants

FEMA's hazard mitigation assistance provides funding for eligible mitigation measures that reduce disaster losses.

"Hazard mitigation" is any sustainable action that reduces or eliminates long-term risk to people and property from future disasters.

Mitigation planning breaks the cycle of disaster damage, reconstruction and repeated damage. Hazard mitigation includes long-term solutions that reduce the impact of disasters in the future.

2023 Hazard Mitigation Partners Workshop

The Hazard Mitigation (HM) Partners Workshop will be held virtually on Oct. 16-19, 2023, from noon– 4:45 p.m. Eastern Time (ET).

The 2023 HM Partners Workshop theme, All Together for Climate Resilient Communities, will bring stakeholders to together to discuss our focus on partnerships, community-based efforts to prevent and reduce the risk of flooding, expanding access to Hazard Mitigation Assistance grant funding, and simplifying our mitigation programs and processes to help the whole community build climate resilience.

FEMA anticipates opening the call for abstracts in March 2023.
