A total of $410 million is available through two of FEMA’s Fiscal Year 2019 Hazard Mitigation Assistance programs.

The application period for Flood Mitigation Assistance (FMA) and Pre-Disaster Mitigation (PDM) programs is now open until 3 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on Jan. 31, 2020. Eligible applicants must apply through the FEMA Mitigation eGrants system on the FEMA Grants Portal

For the FMA program, FEMA’s predetermined funding priorities include flood mitigation planning and efforts for repetitive as well as severe repetitive loss properties.

The PDM program is designed to implement a sustained pre-disaster natural hazard mitigation program with the goal of reducing overall risk to the population and structures from future hazard events.

FEMA’s two competitive mitigation grant programs provide states, tribes, and territories funding for eligible mitigation activities to strengthen our nation’s ability to build a culture of preparedness by reducing disaster losses and protecting life and property from future disaster damages.
