Hazard Mitigation Grant Program provides assistance post fires

from IAEM

FEMA can now provide Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) assistance to any area that received a Fire Management Assistance Grant (FMAG). This change is a result of the passage of the Disaster Recovery Reform Act amended Section 2014 of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act. The total HMGP Post Fire funding amount available for each FMAG declaration in 2019 is $454,432 for states with a standard hazard mitigation plan and $605,909 for states with an enhanced hazard mitigation plan. FEMA recalculates the national average and the amount of funding available at the beginning of every fiscal year when the first FMAG is awarded. During this past fiscal year, seven states received FMAGs for a total of nine declarations totaling $4.3 million. Visit FEMA.gov to review the Wildfire Assistance Funding and Project Summary report and for additional information about the HMPG Post Fire program. more
