Description

The dataset contains disaster level financial information for FEMA's Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP). The purpose of HMGP is to help communities implement hazard mitigation measures following a Presidential Major Disaster Declaration in the areas of the State, Tribe, or Territory requested by the Governor or Tribal Executive. For more information on the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program, please visit: https://www.fema.gov/grants/mitigation

HMGP (Disaster Numbers 820-1999, 4000-4999)

Section 404 of the Stafford Act authorized the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP). The key purpose of HMGP is to ensure that the opportunity to take critical mitigation measures to reduce the risk of loss of life and property from future disasters is not lost during the reconstruction process following a disaster. The amount of HMGP funding available to the Applicant is based upon the total Federal assistance to be provided by FEMA for disaster recovery under the Presidential major disaster declaration.

Fire Management Assistance Grant (FMAG) HMGP (Disaster Numbers 5084-5117)

Section 570 of the Fiscal Year 2015 DHS Appropriations Act authorized FEMA to provide HMGP assistance as a result of an FMAG declaration. FMAG HMGP was run as a pilot program and funding was provided as a national aggregate calculation based on an average of historical FMAG designations from the last five years.

HMGP Post Fire (Disaster Numbers 5154-5999)

Section 1204 of the Disaster Recovery Reform Act of 2018 amended Section 404 of the Stafford Act to authorize FEMA to provide HMGP assistance in any area affected by a major disaster, or any area affected by a fire for which assistance was provided under Section 420 Fire Management Assistance Grant (FMAG). Funding from multiple events is aggregated into one grant under the first declaration. The Aggregation is reset at the beginning of each fiscal year and remains in effect for that year.

This dataset contains hazard mitigation grant program disasters assistance information from FEMA's mitigation grant systems and as such is subject to a small percentage of human error. 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.
