MEMA currently coordinates non-disaster grants to communities under two broad programs:

Emergency Management and Homeland Security:

Homeland Security Grant Program(HSGP) and Emergency Management Performance Grant (EMPG). (Department of Homeland Security/Federal Emergency Management Agency)

Hazard Mitigation

  • Building Resilient Infrastructure and Communities (BRIC) and Flood Mitigation Assistance (FMA) available annually; and
  • Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP), available only after a federally declared disaster.

Pre-Disaster Mitigation and Hazard Mitigation grants are Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) grant programs, and require 25% local matching funds. 

Other Federal Grant Programs

The US Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Emergency Management Agency sponsor a number of public safety-related grant programs. Visit FEMA Preparedness Grants for a complete reference to all grant programs.
