ABSTRACT

FEMA Fact Sheet: Hazard Mitigation Assistance Division   [open pdf - 263KB]

From the Document: "Funding from the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) may be used broadly by states, local communities, tribes and territories (SLTTs) for health care, medical, public health, and other critical facilities. Over the last 10 years, FEMA has obligated nearly $100 million dollars for 84 SLTT projects to support health and medical care facilities with generators, seismic and wind retrofits, and utility and infrastructure improvements. These projects help reduce riskand increase overall resilience against natural hazards, improving the Health and Medical lifelines. [...] This fact sheet identifies flexibilities SLTTs should consider for projects that can be implemented in the next six to 36 months to enhance resilience to these important facilities. For its part, FEMA is exploring innovative ways to streamline the eligibility review for Health and Medical Lifeline projects, as well as the Benefit Cost Analysis (BCA) requirement."
