Hazard Mitigation Grant Programs

Hazard Mitigation Grant Program – December 2015 Pacific Storm Event DR-4258

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) provides a Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) to assist states and local communities in implementing long-term hazard mitigation measures following a major disaster declaration. The State of Oregon, Oregon Emergency Management (OEM) is administering a HMGP for this disaster. The amount of funds available for HMGP projects is 20%  of the total FEMA costs associated with this disaster (Public “Infrastructure” Assistance – PA and Individual Assistance – IA, if so declared); the HMGP allocation for this disaster is estimated at some $3.75M, 75% Federal Share, based on the Preliminary Damage Assessment for Public Assistance. The actual cost of the HMGP program is shared - FEMA pays a portion of project costs (75%) and successful applicants provide a non-Federal share (25%) . Eligible applicants for this HMGP initially include state and local governments, consumer-owned utility providers and certain special districts in the requested disaster area (declared counties) that have current, FEMA-approved natural hazard mitigation plans. Homeowners and business owners can also participate in this HMGP offering but must be represented by an eligible applicant. HMGP is available statewide after initial, priority consideration in the declared counties.​

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.”​
