Funding Available to Mitigate Future Flood, Hazard Losses

Tuesday October 8th, 2019
The Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency (PEMA) is accepting applications for non-disaster flood mitigation and hazard mitigation funding from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Grants are available under two programs:
Flood Mitigation Assistance (FMA), for reducing or eliminating claims under the National Flood Insurance Program. For FY 2019, $160 million in funding is available, with $70 million prioritized for community flood mitigation proposals.
Pre-Disaster Mitigation (PDM), for reducing overall risk to people and structures from future hazard events and also reducing reliance on federal funding. For FY 2019, $250 million is available.
To be eligible for funding, municipalities must have adopted their county hazard mitigation plan. Projects must be consistent with the goals and objectives identified in the current FEMA-approved state and local plans.
Interested applicants should submit a PEMA Non-Disaster Letter of Interest pre-application form #19 to the agency's Hazard Mitigation Division to determine if the intended plan or project is eligible under the FMA or PDM grant programs. The form is available on the PEMA website. These forms must be submitted by October 31, 2019.
Grant applications must be submitted via FEMA's eGrants system. The deadline is 4 p.m. November 15, 2019.
For more information, download the PEMA circular about the grant programs on the PEMA Circulars page.
