Via the always useful CZMA Climate Change and Coastal Hazards E-News Update newsletter:
The Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) “Unified Hazard Mitigation Assistance Program Guidance” (176 pp.) represents the unification of all five of the agency’s hazard mitigation grant programs into one guidance document. These programs, which provide funding for eligible mitigation activities that reduce disaster losses and protect life and property from future disaster damages, are the Pre-Disaster Mitigation, Severe Repetitive Loss, Flood Mitigation Assistance, Repetitive Flood Claims programs (nondisaster programs), and the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program. Applications for the nondisaster programs are due to FEMA by December 3, 2010. (Check with your state’s emergency management agency for details on state deadlines and procedures).
Admittedly, probably not the most fascinating reading, but super useful when you’re looking for funding. Plus now the process of applying for multiple different FEMA grants just got a lot easier easier. You can find the whole thing over on FEMA’s website.
