Hazard Mitigation Assistance Division 2019 Year in Review   [open pdf - 6MB]

From the Document: "The FEMA Hazard Mitigation Assistance (HMA) Division includes more than 200 dedicated staff across the country who work closely with federal partners and support states, local communities, tribes, and territories (SLTTs) to reduce nationwide vulnerability to disasters and natural hazards. [...] The HMA Division oversees the delivery of four grant programs to provide SLTTs with mitigation funding: the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP), Hazard Mitigation Post Fire Grant Program (HMGP Post Fire), Flood Mitigation Assistance Grant Program (FMA), and Pre-Disaster Mitigation Grant Program (PDM). Examples of hazard mitigation projects funded by FEMA HMA grant programs include acquiring repeatedly flooded properties, elevating structures, and building safe rooms. In 2019, HMA approved 1,229 grants in our combined programs, totaling over $850 million in funding from FEMA. In addition, HMA is working to enhance coordination with FEMA's Public Assistance (PA) Division, which supports communities' recovery from major disasters by providing mitigation funding opportunities to restore and strengthen public infrastructure."
