Hazard Mitigation Grant Program – FEMA: 2015 FMAG-HMGP Pilot

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) places a high priority on supporting expeditious wildfire recovery through the use of the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP). In order to advance risk reduction after Fire Management Assistance Grant (FMAG) declarations, FEMA announced a Pilot to provide  HMGP assistance. Section 570 of the Fiscal Year 2015 DHS Appropriations Act authorizes FEMA to provide HMGP assistance as a result of a FMAG declaration. It reads: “Notwithstanding section 404 or 420 of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief  and Emergency Assistance Act (42 U.S.C. 5170c and 5187), until September 30, 2015, the President may provide hazard mitigation assistance in accordance with such section 404 in any area in which assistance was provided under such section 420.”​
