This dataset contains funded projects under FEMA’s Hazard Mitigation Assistance (HMA) grant programs by communities participating in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) Community Rating System (CRS). The Hazard Mitigation Assistance Projects by NFIP CRS Communities dataset can be joined to the OpenFEMA Hazard Mitigation Assistance Funded Project dataset by the Project Identifier field. Note, not all projects in the Hazard Mitigation Assistance Funded Project dataset will associate to an NFIP CRS Community. For more information on the NFIP CRS Program, visit

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 (PDM) grant program) and Biggert Water Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012 (Repetitive Flood Claims (RFC) grant program and Severe Repetitive Loss (SRL) grant program).
