Grant Deadline: 

The PDM Program is designed to assist States, U.S. Territories, Federally-recognized tribes, and local communities in implementing a sustained pre-disaster natural hazard mitigation program. The goal is to reduce overall risk to the population and structures from future hazard events, while also reducing reliance on Federal funding in future disasters.  This program awards planning and project grants and provides opportunities for raising public awareness about reducing future losses before disaster strikes. Mitigation planning is a key process used to break the cycle of disaster damage, reconstruction, and repeated damage. FEMA requires state, territorial, tribal, and local governments to develop and adopt hazard mitigation plans as a condition for receiving certain types of non-emergency disaster assistance, including funding for PDM mitigation projects. For more information on the mitigation plan requirement, visit the Hazard Mitigation Plan Requirement web page or refer to the current HMA Guidance for detailed information on the PDM Program. FEMA will offer a webinar on the FY18 NOFOs for prospective tribal applicants. This webinar will be offered two times: August 29, 2018 at 11 am Pacific and August 30, 2018 at 9 am Pacific, and applicants may attend either session.
