ODPS Ohio Emergency Management Agency FEMA Mitigation Programs

FEMA Mitigation Programs


Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMPG)
To provide funds to States, territories, Indian Tribal governments, and communities to significantly reduce or permanently eliminate future risk to lives and property from natural hazards. HMGP funds projects in accordance with priorities identified in State, Tribal or local hazard mitigation plans, and enables mitigation measures to be implemented during the recovery from a disaster.

Unified HMA Program

The Unified HMA Program is to create a unified grant guidance, application period, eligibility, implementation, management, and close-out process for each of the four pre-disaster mitigation grant programs provided by FEMA. All four programs have unique statutory authorities, program requirements and triggers for funding. The Unified HMA Program does not integrate the four grants into one singular program. Each grant will retain its unique characteristics. The UNIFIED HMA PROGRAM WORKSHOP: BRINGING YOUR LOCAL HAZARD MITIGATION PLAN TO LIFE! is a 3-hour workshop designed and delivered by the Mitigation Branch to provide an overview of the Unified HMA Program and the HMGP grants.

  • Flood Mitigation Assistance Program (FMA) - To implement cost-effective measures that reduce or eliminate the long-term risk of flood damage to buildings, manufactured homes, and other structures insured under the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).
     
  • Pre-Disaster Mitigation Competitive Program (PDM) - To provide funds to states, territories, Indian Tribal governments, and communities for hazard mitigation planning and the implementation of mitigation projects prior to a disaster event. Funding these plans and projects reduces overall risks to the population and structures, while also reducing reliance on funding from actual disaster declarations.
     
  • Repetitive Flood Claim Program (RFC) - To reduce or eliminate the long-term risk of flood damage to structures insured under the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) that have had one or more claim payment(s) for flood damages.
     
  • Severe Repetitive Loss Program (SRL) - To reduce or eliminate the long-term risk of flood damage to severe repetitive loss residential properties and the associated drain on the National Flood Insurance Fund (NFIF) from such properties
