ABSTRACT

Wildfire Mitigation Policy for the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) and Pre-Disaster Mitigation (PDM) Program   [open pdf - 1MB]

The purpose of this document is to "[e]stablish the wildfire mitigation policy for the HMGP [Hazard Mitigation Grant Program] and PDM [Pre-Disaster Mitigation] program and establish the parameters to implement wildfire mitigation under sections 203 and 404 of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act (Stafford Act) 42 U.S.C. 5121-5207. This policy will ensure national consistency in the use of HMGP and PDM funds for wildfire mitigation projects. In particular, it describes the availability of these funds for (1) defensible space, (2) structural protection through the application of ignition-resistant construction, and (3) limited hazardous fuels reduction to protect life and property."
