Let’s Mitigate Montana
Mitigation is the effort to reduce loss of life and property by lessening the impact of disasters. Effective mitigation requires that we all understand local risks, address the hard choices, and invest in long-term community well-being.

The Flood Mitigation Assistance grant program is intended to help reduce or eliminate claims under the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).
The purpose of the HMGP program is to help communities implement hazard mitigation measures following a Presidential major disaster declaration. Hazard mitigation is any action taken to reduce or eliminate long term risk to people and property from natural hazards.
The purpose of Hazard Mitigation Grant Post Fire (HMGP PF) is to help communities implement hazard mitigation measures following the declaration of a Fire Managment Assistance Grant (FMAG). Wildfires can destroy homes, businesses, infrastructure, and natural resources. They can also exacerbate secondary hazards and leave areas prone to floods, erosion, and mudflows for many years. The key purpose of this grant program is to enact mitigation measures that reduce the risk of loss of life and property from future disasters.
NEHRP seeks to mitigate earthquake losses in the United States through basic and directed research and implementation activities in the fields of earthquake science and engineering.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) announces its intent to prepare a Programmatic Environmental Assessment (PEA) for wildfire mitigation projects throughout the State of Montana.
