FEMA Announces $40 million for Flood Mitigation Assistance Program Grants

18 Dec 2020 2:09 PM | Anonymous

FEMA announced an additional $40 million in funding is available for the Hazard Mitigation Assistance Flood Mitigation Assistance grant program. This increases the funding amount for Fiscal Year 2020 from $160 million to $200 million. The increase in funding is a result of recovered funds – available funds for projects from previous grant cycles that were completed under budget or were not implemented. 

This competitive grant program assists state, tribal, and territorial governments as applicants in building a culture of preparedness by strengthening our nation’s ability to reduce disaster losses and protect life and property from future disaster damage.

The Notice of Funding Opportunity is updated with the new grant amount. Additional details such as eligibility, funding guidelines and evaluation criteria have not changed and are available on FEMA.gov.

The application period opened Sept. 30. Eligible applicants must apply for funding using the new FEMA Grants Outcome (FEMA GO). All applications must be submitted in the FEMA Go Portal no later than 3 p.m. ET on Jan. 29, 2021. Applications received by FEMA after this deadline will not be considered for funding. Please note that applicants may have earlier deadlines for sub-applicants. For local governments and state and tribal agencies, please contact your State Hazard Mitigation Officer to learn about the applicant's priorities, deadlines, and additional requirements.

FEMA hosted a webinars series to provide applicants and sub-applicants an overview of FEMA pre-disaster hazard mitigation grant programs that included details about the agency’s funding priorities and common application errors and how to avoid them. The recorded webinars are available on the FEMA website.
