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.
- Drainage improvement
- Power line burials
- Acquisition and relocation of structures
- Generators and warning sirens
