Hazard Mitigation Grant Program

The Hazard Mitigation Grant Program provides funds to states, territories, tribal governments, and other communities after a disaster, to reduce or eliminate future risk to lives and property from natural hazards. Both hazard mitigation plans and projects are meant to reduce the need for future federal assistance from disaster recovery. Mitigation also minimizes overall risk to lives and property. State and local governments, tribal governments, and certain private non-profits may be eligible to apply for funding to cover projects including:

  • Property Acquisitions
  • Drainage and Culvert Improvements
  • Slope Stabilization
  • Infrastructure Protection
  • Storm-water Projects
  • Wildfire Mitigation
  • Warning Sirens
  • Seismic and Wind Retrofits 
  • Structure Elevations
  • Mitigation Plan Updates

HMGP funding is available to all communities across the State that meet the sub-applicant and project eligibility requirements. Federal Funding for this grant program is available following a major federal disaster declaration. HMGP funds are available based on a percentage of the assistance provided to the State in the Public Assistance and Individual Assistance programs. The HMGP is competetive statewide and is authorized under Section 404 of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act.

Please understand that the FEMA hazard mitigation grant programs are not intended to fund repair, replacement, or deferred maintenance activities. They are designed to assist sub-applicants in developing long-term, cost-effective improvements that will reduce or eliminate risk of damage to people and property caused from these disasters.
