*FEMA's Hazard Mitigation Grant Program provides funding to state, local, tribal & territorial governments to develop hazard mitigation plans & rebuild in a way that reduces, or mitigates, future disaster losses in their communities.

Mitigation is the reduction or elimination of potential risk to life and/or property. It is a cost-effective way to avoid future damage from disasters, such as flooding or high winds. There are many different actions that property owners can take to mitigate future risk.

Typical residential mitigation projects include: 

  • Structure Acquisition & Demolition
  • Structure Elevation 
  • Structure Wind Retrofit

These grant programs fund long-term projects to make a community more resilient. This means that if a local government applies on your behalf, it may be up to more than a year before the project is reviewed, approved and authorized to begin.


  • These grant programs are NOT emergency recovery or repair programs. They are a process to make communities more resilient to future disasters.
  • With any of these grant programs, residents may be required to contribute up to 25% of the overall project cost.
  • Individuals and businesses must apply through an eligible subapplicant. 
  • Eligible subapplicants include local government, state agencies, tribal governments, and private non-profit organizations.
  • Individual residential mitigation projects could be grouped together with similar projects under the same grant to potentially increase cost-effectiveness.
