Federal Emergency Management Agency, U.S. Department of Homeland Security
Jan 27, 2023

The Federal Emergency Management Agency provides grants for pre-disaster mitigation activities, including those associated with mitigating the effects of climate change, to build capacity of state and local governments, Tribes, and territories.

The program is designed to:

  • Support state and local governments, tribes, and territories through capacity building to enable them to identify mitigation actions and implement projects that reduce risks posed by natural hazards
  • Encourage and enable innovation while allowing flexibility, consistency, and effectiveness
  • Promote partnerships and enable high-impact investments to reduce risk from natural hazards with a focus on critical services and facilities, public infrastructure, public safety, public health, and communities
  • Provide a significant opportunity to reduce future losses and minimize impacts on the Disaster Relief Fund
  • Promote equity, including by helping members of overburdened and underserved groups and prioritizing 40 percent of the benefits to disadvantaged communities
  • Support the adoption and enforcement of building codes, standards, and policies that will protect the health, safety, and general welfare of the public, take into account future conditions, and have long-lasting impacts on community risk reduction, including for critical services and facilities and for future disaster costs

Priority is given to projects that benefit disadvantaged communities, which includes but is not limited to communities with high unemployment and/or persistent poverty, racial and ethnic segregation, low transportation access, limited water and sanitation access, limited access to healthcare, and all areas within tribal jurisdictions.
