Overview of DR-4145 Hazard Mitigation Assistance

The Colorado DHSEM Mitigation Team is now accepting Notice of Intent (NOI) forms for the FY15 Hazard Mitigation Assistance Guidance grants, including the Pre-Disaster Mitigation Program (PDM)  and Flood Mitigation Assistance Program (FMA). These grants represent an opportunity to improve a community’s ability to mitigate natural hazards and reduce potential impacts on citizens, property and local economies.

The Mitigation Team will invite jurisdictions to complete a full grant application as appropriate. 

FEMA Program Grant Announcements


Similar to last year, the timeline for application development is significantly shorter than in previous years. The compressed timeline suggests that the most competitive projects will be those in alignment with Federal program priorities, previously scoped, in pre-design, and with a well-established cost estimate.
