Hazard Mitigation Grant

Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP)

When is the application cycle?
The application cycle for this program begins 30 days from the federally declared disaster and concludes eight months after the date of declaration. Jurisdictions that were affected by the disaster will be given priority if they decide to apply for mitigation funds. In the event they do not, then the grant opportunity will be open to all jurisdictions within the state.

Who is eligible to apply? 
States, counties, territories, federally-recognized tribal governments, and private nonprofit organizations are eligible applicants. Each applicant must have a current FEMA approved Hazard Mitigation Plan.

What is the cost share?
In general mitigation funds may be used to pay up to 75 percent of the eligible activity costs. The remaining 25 percent must be derived from non-federal sources.
