FEMA 2012 Hazard Mitigation Assistance Program Grant Announcement

The Colorado Division of Emergency Management Mitigation Team is now accepting Notice of Interest from eligible sub grantees for the Hazard Mitigation Assistance grants, including the Pre-Disaster Mitigation Program (PDM), Flood Mitigation Assistance Program (FMA) and Repetitive Flood Claims Program (RFC). It is the Mitigation Teams’ hope that local emergency management partners will take a comprehensive look at their community’s risk, determine if any projects would meet the requirements for funding, and submit an application. These grants represent a fantastic opportunity to improve a community’s ability to mitigate natural hazards and reduce potential impacts on citizens, property and local economies.

The Mitigation Team is soliciting Notice of Interest for these programs by July 15, 2011. Please take a look at the Hazard Mitigation Assistance Announcement Letter for additional information and contact Ken Brink, Mitigation Team Supervisor, with questions or comments at kenneth.brink@state.co.us or 720-852-6695.
