FMA FY2019

FEMA's Hazard Mitigation Assistance (HMA) grant programs provide funding to protect life and property from future natural disasters. The Flood Mitigation Assistance (FMA) grant program assists States, Tribal, Territorial and local governments reduce or eliminate claims under the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).

For FY 2019, $160 million was initially made available for FMA. On August 26, 2019, FEMA posted the Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) on www.grants.gov to announce the availability of $160 million for FMA grants and the application period October 1, 2019 – January 31, 2019. On December 23, 2019, FEMA announced a revised FMA NOFO that amended the federal funding available from $160 million to $210 million based on identified recoveries from prior project underruns.

FEMA will fund the flood portion of mitigation planning subapplications consistent with 44CFR Part 201 up to $100,000 federal share per applicant with a maximum of $50,000 for state plans and $25,000 for local plans. In addition, applicants who were awarded FMA grant funds totaling at least $1 million in FY 2018 may receive technical assistance up to $50,000.  The remaining funds will be awarded on a competitive basis for projects.
