Pre-Disaster Mitigation (PDM) and Flood Mitigation Assistance (FMA) Grant Programs:
The Pre-Disaster Mitigation (PDM) program provides funds for hazard mitigation planning and projects on an annual basis. The PDM program was set in place to reduce overall risk to people and structures, while at the same time, also reducing reliance on federal funding if an actual disaster were to occur.
The Flood Mitigation Assistance (FMA) program provides funds for projects to reduce or eliminate risk of flood damage to buildings that are insured under the National Flood Insurance Program
(NFIP) on an annual basis.
As of July 15, 2014, the application period for the Federal fiscal year 2014 for the Pre-Disaster Mitigation and Flood Mitigation Assistance Grant Program has closed. Please contact Wendy Blackwell the State Hazard Mitigation Officer at 505-476-9676 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
if you have additional questions.
