This page documents the metadata for the Hazard Mitigation Assistance Mitigated Properties API data feed.
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 to reduce 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 Pre-Disaster Mitigation (PDM) grant program. This dataset also contains data from the HMA grant programs that were eliminated by the Biggert Water Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012 (BW-12): 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/hazard-mitigation-assistance.
The dataset contains properties by project identifier, city, zip code, state and region and does not contain any Personally Identifiable Information (PII). The mitigated property 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 have mitigated properties (e.g., Planning and Management Cost projects). In some cases data was not provided by the subgrantee (sub-recipient), grantee (recipient) and/or entered into the FEMA mitigation grant systems. The information is likely available as part of the paper file which is considered the file of record.
This is raw, unedited data from FEMA's mitigation grant systems (NEMIS-MT and e-Grants) and as such is subject to a small percentage of human error. The financial information is derived from FEMA's mitigation grant systems and 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 www.usaspending.gov; this dataset is not intended to be used for any official federal financial reporting.
Missing values - In some cases data was not provided by the subgrantee (subrecipient), grantee (recipient) and/or entered into the FEMA mitigation grant systems. The information is likely available as part of the paper file which is considered the file of record.

|disasterNumber||Disaster Number||number||Sequentially assigned number used to designate an event or incident declared as a disaster. For more information on the disaster process, https://www.fema.gov|
|region||Region||number||Number (1-10) used to represent the Region associated with the project|
|stateNumberCode||State Number Code||string||Federal Information Process Standards (FIPS) code corresponding to the U.S. states, districts, and territories (e.g., 51 represents Virginia/VA) associated with the project|
|state||State||string||Full name of the U.S. states, districts, and territories (e.g., Virginia) associated with the project|
|countyCode||County Code||string||FIPS code uniquely identifying the primary county (e.g., 011 represents Broward) associated with the project. Note, the County Code field may not reflect the individual county the property is located as projects can be associated with more than one county (see the Project Counties field) and are often reported as Statewide (e.g., 000 represents Statewide)|
|county||County||string||Full name of the primary county (e.g., Broward) associated with the project. Note, the County field may not reflect the individual county the property is located as projects can be associated with more than one county|
|city||City||string||City where the property is located|
|zipCode||zip Code||string||Zip code where the property is located|
|projectIdentifier||Project Identifier||string||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)|

In addition, the actual amount paid may not include ancillary costs such as appraisals, closing cost or legal fees, asbestos assessment and abatement and/or demolition costs|
