Fire Management Assistance Grant (FMAG)

17 Apr 2018 10:50 AM | Anonymous

Dear Emergency Management Partners,

As we face critical and extreme fire weather for many regions in the state, we want to ensure you have the most up to date information for eligibility and how to request a Fire Management Assistance Grant (FMAG).

The following four criteria from 44 CFR part 204.21 are used to evaluate the threat of a fire or fire complex:

(1) Threat to lives and improved property, including threats to critical facilities/infrastructure, and critical watershed areas;

(2) Availability of State and local firefighting resources;

(3) High fire danger conditions, as indicated by nationally accepted indices such as the National Fire Danger Ratings System; and

(4) Potential major economic impact.

Click here for the most recent Fire Management Assistance Grant Program Guide, FEMA P-954. It is dated February 2014 and was reviewed in February 2017.
