Description

This dataset contains the properties that were mitigated by projects funded under the Hazard Mitigation Assistance (HMA) grant programs. FEMA administers three programs that provide funding for eligible mitigation planning and projects that reduces disaster losses and protect life and property from future disaster damages. The three programs are the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP), Flood Mitigation Assistance (FMA) grant program, and Building Resilient Infrastructure and Communities (BRIC) grant program. This dataset also contains data from the HMA grant programs that were eliminated by the Disaster Recovery Reform Act of 2018 (Pre-Disaster Mitigation grant program (PDM)), the Biggert Water Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012 (Repetitive Flood Claims (RFC) grant program, and Severe Repetitive Loss (SRL) grant program). For more information on the Hazard Mitigation Assistance grant programs, please visit: https://www.fema.gov/grants/mitigation.

This dataset contains mitigated property information from FEMA's mitigation grant systems and is subject to a small percentage of human error. The dataset contains properties by project identifier, city, zip code, county, state and region and does not contain any Personally Identifiable Information (PII). The dataset can be joined to the OpenFEMA Hazard Mitigation Assistance Funded Project dataset by the Project Identifier field. Not all projects in the Hazard Mitigation Assistance Funded Project dataset will have mitigated properties (e.g., Planning and Management Cost projects). The financial information is derived from FEMA's mitigation grant systems, not FEMA's official financial systems. Due to differences in reporting periods, status of obligations and how business rules are applied, this financial information may differ slightly from official publication on public websites such as usaspending.gov; this dataset is not intended to be used for any official federal financial reporting.

In some cases, data was not provided by the subrecipient, recipient and/or entered into FEMA's mitigation grant systems. The information is likely available as part of the paper file which is considered the file of record.

projectIdentifier Project Identifier
text
Single-value identifier that uniquely identifies a project. Disaster-based projects use the convention of DR-disaster number-project number-suffix (e.g., DR-1761-0001-M) while non-disaster projects use the unique project number (e.g., FMA-PJ-10-WA-2017-006) yes
