FEMA Flood Mitigation Assistance (FMA) and Pre-Disaster Mitigation (PDM) grant programs
Funding Category Federal
Funding Agency FEMA
Funding Title Flood Mitigation Assistance (FMA) and Pre-Disaster Mitigation (PDM) grant programs
Description The PDM awards grants to reduce risk from future hazard events while simultaneously reducing reliance on Federal funding for these disasters. FEMA targets States, U.S. Territories, Federally-recognized tribes, and local communities for participation in the PDM program to raise public awareness about mitigation planning. Similarly, the FMA program makes federal funds available to these stakeholder groups to reduce or eliminate the risk of repetitive flood damage to structures insured under the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). FEMA will provide allocations of $575,000 as required by the Stafford Act to states and territories; and a tribal set aside of $10 million for allocations up to $575,000 for Native American Indian tribal governments to support overall mitigation planning and projects. The remaining PDM funds will be awarded on a competitive basis with a focus on multi-state/tribal mitigation initiatives. Applicants must submit applications via the Mitigation eGrants system on the FEMA Grants Portal: https://portal.fema.gov. Applicants may submit a maximum of 9 project sub-applications notwithstanding any project(s) submitted for the state/territory allocation or tribal set aside. In addition, any state or tribe willing to serve as the applicant for a multi-state or tribal activity may submit one additional plan or project subapplication. The Flood Mitigation Assistance (FMA) Program makes available Federal funds to State, Local and Tribal Governments to reduce or eliminate the risk of repetitive flood damage to buildings and structures insured under the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). In FY17, the FMA Program will prioritize proposals that address community flood risk by setting aside $70 million for this purpose. FEMA will seek to fund two types of community flood mitigation activities: Advance Assistance for flood mitigation design and development of community flood mitigation projects and mitigation projects that address community flood risk for the purpose of reducing NFIP flood claim payments. The remaining funding, at least $90,000,000, will be used for FMA technical assistance, mitigation planning, and mitigation projects reducing risk to severe repetitive loss (SRL) and repetitive loss (RL) properties. Applicants must submit applications via the Mitigation eGrants system on the FEMA Grants Portal: https://portal.fema.gov. Applicants may submit a maximum of 1 advanced assistance and 1 community mitigation project sub-application.
