2017 August-November DHS\FEMA Pre-Disaster Mitigation (PDM) Funding

The Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) for the Pre-Disaster Mitigation (PDM) grant program for fiscal year 2017 has been released!

The PDM program is a yearly, competitive grant program that is authorized by Congress and administered by FEMA. 

The total amount of funds to be distributed under FY17 PDM is $90,000,000.  FEMA’s grant priorities change on a yearly basis; this year FEMA is prioritizing multi-state/tribal mitigation activities and planning activities.

Federally recognized Native American Tribal governments
Each State, Territory, Commonwealth, or Native American Tribal government shall designate one agency to serve as the applicant for PDM funding. Each applicant’s designated agency may submit only one PDM grant application to FEMA. Applications under which two or more entities would carry out the award are eligible, such as a multi-state or multi-tribal initiative; however, only one entity may be the applicant with primary responsibility for carrying out the award.

Local governments, including cities, townships, counties, special district governments, and Native American tribal organizations are considered subapplicants and must submit subapplications for mitigation planning and projects to their State/Territory applicant agency. Contact information for the State Hazard Mitigation Officers (SHMOs) is provided on the FEMA website:
