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.
