Pre-Disaster Mitigation (PDM) Grant

The Pre-Disaster Mitigation (PDM) Grant Program is authorized by Section 203 of the Stafford Act.  As a result of amendments by the Disaster Relief and Recovery Act of 2018, the Pre-Disaster Mitigation program is being replaced with the new Building Resilient Infrastructure and Communities (BRIC) program.

On March 15, 2022, President Biden signed into law the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2022, which authorizes $154 million through FEMA’s Hazard Mitigation Assistance Pre-Disaster Mitigation grant program for 68 specific projects that will support growing mitigation needs nationwide. This funding is in addition to funds provided through other FEMA grant programs and communities with identified projects must submit an application and meet all programs requirements.
