The HSEM Hazard Mitigation team's mission is to reduce the risk to
people and property from natural hazards by developing and implementing long
term mitigation measures that will reduce or eliminate the severe effects of
future disasters. This webpage contains funding opportunities
and links to federal hazard mitigation and other programs.
Hazard Mitigation Programs
The Hazard Mitigation Assistance (HMA) grant programs provide funding opportunities for pre- and post-disaster mitigation. While the statutory origins of the programs differ, all share the common goal of reducing the risk of loss of life and property due to natural hazards.

Hazard Mitigation Planning
Hazard mitigation planning
reduces the risk to people and property, and reduces the cost of recovering from a disaster. A hazard mitigation plan can help communities become more sustainable and disaster-resistant by focusing efforts on the hazards, disaster-prone areas and identifying appropriate mitigation actions. Effective mitigation planning and efforts can break the cycle of disaster damage, reconstruction, and repeated damage.
