Need to know how to apply to the Hazard Mitigation Grants Program (HGMP)? Or for Pre-Disaster Mitigation (PDM), Flood Mitigation Assistance (FMA), Repetitive Flood Claims (RFC), or Severe Repetitive Loss Pilot (SRL) grants?
If so, you’re in luck: FEMA’s just released the extensive (188-page) Hazard Mitigation Assistance Unified Guidance handbook applicable to HMGP funds available for disasters declared on or after June 1, 2009 (HGMP funds are only released after a Presidential disaster declaration), as well as for for Fiscal Year 2010 (FY10) cycle of the PDM, FMA, RFC, and SRL programs.
While (let’s face it) this probably isn’t the type of document you can’t wait to get into, it does contain some great information key to tapping into the $200 million+ covered by these programs. See, for example this table summarizing what funds may be used for which types of projects:
