The Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency (PEMA) announced the new FEMA Disaster Mitigation Grants, called the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program. This program helps communities implement hazard mitigation measures to reduce the risk of loss of life and property from future disasters. Phase 1 letters of intent must be sent to PEMA by October 15, and phase 2 letters of intent must be sent to PEMA by December 3. Subrecipient applications will be accepted October 18 until January 7 for phase 1 and from January 10 to February 28 for phase 2.
