Delaware Emergency Management Agency | Date Posted: Thursday, October 4, 2018



(Smyrna) – The FY 2018 Pre-Disaster Mitigation Grant Program (PDM), offered through the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), is now open for application.  The PDM Grant Program is intended to assist states, U.S. Territories, federally-recognized tribes, and local communities in implementing pre-disaster natural hazard mitigation projects by awarding planning and project grants designed to mitigate future damage before disaster strikes. More detailed information regarding the PDM Grant Program can be found at https://www.fema.gov/pre-disaster-mitigation-grant-program. A fact sheet with guidance on FEMA’s evaluation criteria and priorities for this grant cycle can be found at https://www.fema.gov/media-library/assets/documents/168111.

The Delaware Emergency Management Agency (DEMA) is seeking eligible projects to be submitted through sub-applicants (state and local governments) for the PDM grant program. DEMA will review all pre-applications for eligibility and determine which projects will move forward in the application process by October 25, 2018. Eligible project sub-applications will be required to be submitted to FEMA for further review by December 31, 2018.

For additional information, or if your organization wishes to apply for PDM funding, contact your county emergency management office, or Paige Fitzgerald at DEMA, 302-659-2205, or paige.fitzgerald@state.de.us.
