State or Federal?
Authorized by the Stafford Act, 42 U.S.C. 5133, the Pre-Disaster Mitigation (PDM) program is designed to help States, territories, federally-recognized tribes, and local communities to implement a sustained pre-disaster natural hazard mitigation program to reduce overall risk to the population and structures from future hazard events, while also reducing reliance on Federal funding in future disasters. Congressional appropriations provide funding for PDM. These programs provide funding for the development of Local Hazard Mitigation Plans (LHMPs) and the implementation of hazard mitigation projects. Additional program information is included within FEMAs 2015 Hazzard Mitigation Assistance Unified Guidance (HMA Guidance). The NOFO, NOI, FEMA’s HMA Guidance and other grant information can be found on the Cal OES web page.
