Available Funding

Cost Share




Project List

More Resources

On March 23, 2024, President Biden signed into law Further Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2024, authorizing funding for FEMA’s Hazard Mitigation Assistance Pre-Disaster Mitigation grant program.

About the Program

The Pre-Disaster Mitigation grant program makes federal funds available to state, local, tribal, and territorial governments to plan for and implement sustainable cost-effective measures. These mitigation efforts are designed to reduce the risk to individuals and property from future natural hazards, while also reducing reliance on federal funding from future disasters. This funding is offered in addition to funds provided through other FEMA grant programs for projects that will support growing mitigation needs nationwide.

Communities and Tribal Nations with projects identified for funding must submit an application for their grants in accordance with the Fiscal Year 2024 Pre-Disaster Mitigation Congressionally Directed Spending funding opportunities published on

Available Funding

For FY 2024, the total amount of funds that are being made available to 110 congressionally directed projects will be $190,568,289.

Cost Share

A non-federal cost share is required for all subapplications funded through the Pre-Disaster Mitigation grant program. The non-federal cost share may consist of cash, donated or third-party in-kind services, materials, or any combination thereof. The cost share information is as follows:

  • Generally, the cost share is 75% federal and 25% non-federal cost share.
  • Small impoverished communities are eligible for up to 90% federal cost share and 10% non-federal cost share for their mitigation planning and project subapplications in accordance with the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act.
    • Small impoverished communities are defined as having 3,000 or fewer individuals identified by the applicant that is economically disadvantaged, with residents having an average per capita annual income not exceeding 80% of the national per capita income.
    • Federally recognized Tribal governments meeting the definition of a small, impoverished community that apply to FEMA directly as Applicants are eligible for a 90% federal cost share for their planning, project, and management costs subapplications.

Eligibility Requirements

Only states, territories, or federally recognized tribal governments identified by Congress in the Further Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2024 and enumerated in the accompanying Joint Explanatory Statement for Division C are identified in this Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) and are eligible to apply.

Each state, territory or federally recognized tribal nation with a project identified in the Pre-Disaster Mitigation funding opportunity shall designate one agency to serve as the applicant for funding. Each applicant’s designated agency may submit only one Pre-Disaster Mitigation grant application to FEMA.

Local governments, including cities, townships, counties, special district governments, and tribal governments (including federally recognized tribes who choose to apply as subapplicants) that are identified in the funding opportunity are considered subapplicants and must submit subapplications to their state applicant agency. Any tribal government identified in the funding opportunity that chooses to apply as a subapplicant must submit its application through the appropriate state applicant agency. For more information, contact the appropriate State Hazard Mitigation Officer.

Applicants may apply for management costs of up to 10% of the total federal share of each project subaward to manage that specific project. If the applicant would like to apply for management costs, it must be deducted from the subrecipient’s joint explanatory statement amount, up to 10% per subapplication.

The recipient must report on the management costs per 2 Code of Federal Regulations 200 and the 2023 Hazard Mitigation Assistance (HMA) Program and Policy Guide. Funding appropriated for one project may only be used for that project. Applicant requests for RMC must be submitted in a separate management costs subgrant application in FEMA’s grant application system. Management costs are 100%federally funded. 

When applying for Hazard Mitigation Assistance funding, all programmatic requirements must be met. FEMA has listed several requirements below as a quick reference, but it is encouraged to refer to the funding opportunity for a full list of all requirements.

Build America, Buy America Act Requirement

The Build America, Buy America Act (BABAA) requires all federal agencies, including FEMA, to ensure that all federal financial assistance for infrastructure projects meets the Buy America preference that all iron and steel, manufactured products, and construction materials used in that infrastructure are manufactured in the United States.

When necessary, recipients and subrecipients may apply for, and FEMA may grant, a waiver from these requirements. A waiver may be granted if FEMA determines that:

  • Applying the domestic content procurement preference would be inconsistent with the public interest.
  • The types of iron, steel, manufactured products, or construction materials are not produced in the United States in sufficient and reasonably available quantities or of a satisfactory quality.
  • The inclusion of iron, steel, manufactured products, or construction materials produced in the United States will increase the cost of the overall project by more than 25%.

For FEMA awards, FEMA’s Interim Policy on BABAA requirements and information on the process for requesting a waiver from the Buy America preference requirements can be found on FEMA’s website at “Buy America” Preference in FEMA Financial Assistance Programs for Infrastructure.

Hazard Mitigation Plan Requirement

All applicants and subapplicants must have a FEMA-approved Hazard Mitigation Plan by the application deadline and at the time of the obligation of funds, unless the subapplicant is applying for a planning subgrant.

The mitigation projects submitted with the application must be consistent with the goals and objectives identified in the existing FEMA-approved Hazard Mitigation Plan. Interested applicants and subapplicants should contact their State Hazard Mitigation Officer for guidance if they do not have a FEMA-approved Hazard Mitigation Plan.

FEMA may grant an exception to the local hazard mitigation plan requirement in extraordinary circumstances, when adequate justification is provided. This exception must be requested with the subapplication. If this exception is granted, a local hazard mitigation plan must be approved by FEMA within 12 months of the award of the project subgrant to that community.

Cost Effectiveness

All applicants and subapplicants applying for mitigation projects must demonstrate the cost-effectiveness of the mitigation project through a Benefit-Cost Analysis or other documentation. The Benefit-Cost Analysis is the method of estimating the future benefits of a project compared to its cost. FEMA has created a Benefit-Cost Analysis Toolkit that must be used to determine project cost-effectiveness. Please use the Benefit-Cost Analysis Toolkit found on the FEMA website.

FEMA is also leveraging an alternative cost-effectiveness method that will modify the threshold for mitigation projects to be cost-effective under limited conditions. This has long been identified as a challenge by stakeholders to applying for funding. Subapplicants may submit a cost-effectiveness narrative, rather than a Benefit-Cost Analysis, for projects costing less than $1 million. Please reference the program support material found on the FEMA website.

Technical Feasibility and Effectiveness Requirements

Mitigation projects must be both feasible and effective at mitigating the risks of the hazard(s) for which the project was designed. A project’s feasibility is demonstrated through conformance with accepted engineering practices, established codes, standards, modeling techniques, or best practices. Effective mitigation measures must provide a long-term or permanent solution to a risk from a natural hazard.

Environmental Planning and Historic Preservation Requirement

All mitigation projects must comply with all applicable Environmental Planning and Historic Preservation laws, including the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and related Department of Homeland Security and FEMA instructions and directives. FEMA encourages the use of other supporting guidance that can be used to ensure all environmental requirements, including the Hazard Mitigation Assistance Job Aids.

Application Submission and Funding Deadlines

To apply for funding made available to these Congressionally Directed Spending projects through the Pre-Disaster Mitigation program, applicants must adhere to the following application submission and funding deadlines:

Application Opening: May 24, 2024

Eligible applicants must apply for funding using the Mitigation eGrants system on the FEMA Grants Portal:

FEMA will not review applications that are received after the deadline or consider these late applications for funding.

The application review process begins following the application submission deadline. FEMA will review subapplications submitted by each applicant to ensure all eligibility requirements have been met and there is compliance with the Hazard Mitigation Assistance Guidance.

Application Funding Deadline: Aug. 30, 2024

Period of Performance (POP):

  • Start Date: Date of the recipient's federal award
  • End Date: 36 months from the start date of the recipient's federal award
