FEMA 2014 Hazard Mitigation Assistance Program Grant Announcement

The Colorado DHSEM Mitigation Team is now accepting Notice of Intent (NOI) forms for the 2014 Hazard Mitigation Assistance (HMA) Program grants, including the Pre-Disaster Mitigation Program (PDM) and Flood Mitigation Assistance Program (FMA). These grants represent an opportunity to improve a community’s ability to mitigate natural hazards and reduce potential impacts on citizens, property and local economies. NOIs will be evaluated for eligibility and alignment with HMA program priorities as laid out in the fact sheets linked below. The Mitigation Team will invite jurisdictions to complete a full grant application as appropriate.

HMA Program Grant Announcements and Priorities

Pre-Disaster Mitigation Program (grants.gov posting) (PDM Fact Sheet)

Flood Mitigation Assistance Program (grants.gov posting) (FMA Fact Sheet)


Similar to last year, the timeline for application development is significantly shorter than in previous years. The compressed timeline suggests that the most competitive projects will be those in alignment with Federal program priorities, previously scoped, in pre-design, and with a well-established cost estimate.
