FY16 Grant Application Cycle Announcement
On August 30, 2016, FEMA announced the fiscal year 2016 (FY16) planning and projects “identified for further review” to potentially receive funding for the Flood Mitigation Assistance (FMA) or Pre-Disaster Mitigation (PDM) programs. This competitive grant funding is provided to states, tribes, territories, and local governments for eligible mitigation activities to strengthen our nation’s ability to reduce disaster losses and protect life and property from future disaster damage.
Since the grant application period closed in mid-June, FEMA has reviewed each submission to ensure eligibility, cost effectiveness, technical feasibility and alignment with the agency’s identified priorities to reduce the impacts of disasters. For each competitive grant, these funding priorities are listed in a Notification of Funding Opportunity at Grants.gov.
