Preparing Wyoming to respond to and recover from all-hazards.
Application Period Open for Hazard Mitigation Grants
The application period for FEMA’s fiscal year 2020 Hazard Mitigation Assistance (HMA) grants under the Flood Mitigation Assistance (FMA) and new Building Resilient Infrastructure and Communities (BRIC) programs is now open. Eligible applicants must apply for funding through the FEMA Grants Outcomes (GO) system. All applications must be submitted no later than 5 p.m. Mountain Standard Time (EST) on January 29, 2021.
These two competitive grant programs provide states, local communities, tribes and territories funding for eligible mitigation activities to reduce the risks they face and the impact of future disasters. For FY20, a total of $660 million in funding is available for FMA and BRIC. FEMA will distribute up to $160 million through the FMA grant program, and a record-breaking $500 million of pre-disaster mitigation funding is available through the new BRIC program. Applications submitted after the deadline will not be considered for funding.
The new FEMA Grants Outcomes (GO) system allows users to apply, track, and manage disaster and non-disaster grants. It also improves oversight and monitoring.
To receive assistance with FEMA GO, contact the FEMA GO Helpdesk at email@example.com or by telephone at (877) 611-4700.
