Hazard Mitigation Grant Program

The Stafford Act provides a hazard mitigation grant program (HMGP) to fund statewide mitigation programs (Section 404) and mitigation for disaster–damaged facilities.

Eligible projects are from a jurisdiction that has a FEMA-approved pre-disaster mitigation plan. Applicants can include:

  • State and local governments
  • Certain private, non-profit organizations
  • Tribal governments

Projects must be cost effective, feasible and meet environmental planning and historic preservation requirements. You do not have to wait for a disaster to submit an HPMG application. Download the application forms below to get started.

FEMA provides HMGP grants to states that, in turn, provide sub-grants to local governments for mitigation activities such as planning and the implementation of projects identified through the evaluation of natural hazards.

Example Projects

  • Drainage improvement
  • Power line burials
  • Acquisition and relocation of structures
  • Generators
