The Colorado Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management (DHSEM) Mitigation Team has opened the application period for Mitigation Assistance Program (MAP) grants, formally named the State Hazard Mitigation Program.

  • Local hazard mitigation plans
  • Mitigation studies
  • Purchase of NOAA weather radios
  • Mitigation training materials
  • Printing mitigation information and brochures
  • Mitigation planning activities
  • Hazard Analysis and Risk assessments
  • Hazard mapping projects
  • Risk Communications projects

Activities that are not within the scope of this grant program:
  • Structural projects (projects requiring environmental or historical assessments)
  • Response-oriented equipment

The application period for the program is ongoing; however, projects and plans must be completed by August 30, 2014, so please submit applications as soon as possible. Grant Applications must be filled out by the local emergency manager. Please see the Mitigation Assistance Program Announcement Letter for additional details.
