FEMA Publishes Support Materials for Emergency Management Partners October 2022

bullhornNew support materials are available to governments to help them apply for a FEMA grant program to make them more resilient. 

The materials aid state, local, tribal, and territorial emergency management with submitting more successful Hazard Mitigation Grant Program applications. Materials also help them reduce the time it takes to receive awards. FEMA anticipates the guides will help HMGP funding reach more communities.

The program provides funding to state, local, tribal and territorial governments so they can develop hazard mitigation plans and rebuild in a way that reduces or mitigates, disaster losses in their communities. When requested by an authorized representative, this grant funding is available after a presidentially declared disaster.

In alignment with the “people first” approach outlined in the 2022-2026 FEMA Strategic Plan, these materials provide an overview of program requirements, sample applications and step-by-step instructions that aim to reduce barriers. Guides are especially beneficial to disadvantaged communities that may have difficulties accessing the program. 

The support materials include information for the most requested HMGP project types for various mitigation activities such as acquisition, elevation, flood risk reduction, hurricane wind retrofitting, and soil stabilization. FEMA plans to develop more application support materials for additional project types.
