Hazard Mitigation Assistance Cost Share Webinar

Watch FEMA's webinar discussing cost share requirements and eligible sources of funding for its Hazard Mitigation Assistance (HMA) grant programs:

This presentation discusses cost share requirements and eligible sources of funding for HMA grant programs.

About the Webinar

On Oct. 29, 2020, more than 450 attendees listened as FEMA and other representatives from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and CityTech Strategy Group presented. In addition to defining terms like “in-kind match,” and “duplication of benefits,” the panel shared examples of mitigation projects that have successfully combined grant and cost share funds from various sources.

“One important benefit of the HMA cost share requirement is the ability to organize and build public-private sector partnerships that enhance project outcomes. FEMA wants to help encourage and support stakeholders in partnering with new types of organizations and establishing lines of communication where none have existed previously.”
