Smyrna – The Hazard Mitigation Grant Program for DR-4566 Tropical Storm Isaias funding notice has been announced. The application period started in May 2021, with up to $2,000,000 in available funding for mitigation projects. The Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) is intended to assist state agencies and local governments in implementing long-term hazard mitigation planning and projects following a Presidential major disaster declaration.  More detailed information regarding the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program can be found at https://www.fema.gov/grants/mitigation.

The Delaware Emergency Management Agency (DEMA) is seeking eligible projects to be submitted through sub-applicants (state and local governments) for the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program. DEMA will review all pre-applications for eligibility and determine which projects will move forward in the application process by July 2021. Eligible project sub-applications will be required to be submitted to FEMA for further review by August 2021.
