[ARCHIVED] FEMA Releases $40 Million in Additional Funds for 2020 Mitigation Grants

Each year, FEMA identifies and makes available additional funds from previous grant cycles from projects that were completed under budget or were not implemented. This year, following the release of the fiscal year 2020 Notice of Funding Opportunity for the Hazard Mitigation Assistance Flood Mitigation Assistance (FMA) grant program, FEMA has identified an additional $40 million available in funding.

This competitive grant program assists state and local governments as applicants in building a culture of preparedness by strengthening our nation's ability to reduce disaster losses and protect life and property from future disaster damage.
