FEMA Announced Application Period for Pre-Disaster Mitigation and Flood Mitigation Assistance Grants

States will set their own timelines to meet the FEMA announced timelines, and they should contact their state mitigation office or their state floodplain management office.

FEMA announced the application period for Fiscal Year 2016 Pre-Disaster Mitigation and Flood Mitigation Assistance grant programs is March 15 -June 15, 2016.

The PDM program provides funds on an annual basis for hazard mitigation planning and the implementation of mitigation projects for the purpose of reducing overall risk to the population and structures, while at the same time, also reducing reliance on federal funding from actual disaster declarations. FEMA is making $90 million available for FY16 PDM grants. See the PDM webpage for more information.

The FMA grant program provides funds on an annual basis so that measures can be taken to reduce or eliminate risk of flood damage to buildings insured under the National Flood Insurance Program. FEMA is making $199 million available for FY16 FMA grants. See the FMA webpage for more information.

States, tribes and territories or applicants must submit their PDM and FMA grant applicationsto FEMA via the Mitigation eGrants system on the FEMA Grants Portal on the Internet at https:/portal.fema.gov by 3 p.m. (ET) on June 15, 2016.

Local and tribal governments or sub-applicants, must submit planning and project sub-applications to their state/territory applicant agency. See the Mitigation eGrants System webpage for more information.
