Currently, the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) has funding available to qualified communities interested in mitigating future damage from natural hazards and helping residents stay safe during severe weather.


Build a Tornado Safe Room Webinar - March 26, 2014

Community tornado safe rooms save lives. FEMA and HSEM want community leaders to learn how to prepare an effective tornado safe room grant application.  To do that, these agencies are co-hosting a webinar for local officials on how to prepare a quality grant application .  For more information or to sign up for this important event, read the fact sheet here.  


Grant Applications

The HMGP is a cost-share grant (75% federal/25% local) made available statewide post- disaster. 
Minnesota has received two federally declared disaster declarations in 2013. That means funds are now available for mitigation projects.
The State Hazard Mitigation Team will meet to evaluate NOIs. Eligible applicants will be invited to develop full HMGP applications.  
To apply, please submit a one-page Notice of Interest (pdf) to HSEM Hazard Mitigation. Potential projects include:
Eligible applicants include:
  • State and local governments
  • Certain private non-profit organizations and institutions
  • Native American tribes and authorized tribal organizations
