Notice of Interest (NOI) for DR-4382 is Now Open
NOI Submission Deadline: October 5, 2018
Mitigation is the effort to reduce loss of life and property by lessening the impact of disasters. Mitigation is taking action now—before the next disaster—to reduce human and financial consequences later. Effective mitigation requires that we all understand local risks, address the hard choices and invest in long-term community well-being and resilience. Without mitigation actions, we jeopardize our safety, financial security and self-reliance.
As the result of a Presidential Disaster Declaration, FEMA’s Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) funds plans and projects that reduce the effects of future natural disasters. In California, these funds are administered by the Cal OES HMGP Unit. Eligible subapplicants include state agencies, local governments, special districts, and some private non-profits. To learn more about the HMGP, visit: FEMA Hazard Mitigation Assistance Guidance.
Pre-Disaster Mitigation (PDM) and Flood Mitigation Assistance (FMA) are additional programs that provide funding for mitigation activities. For additional information on PDM and FMA, click on the following web address: Pre-Disaster & Flood Mitigation.
