  2. Pre-Disaster Mitigation (PDM) Grant ProgramGuidance OverviewCFDA #97.017

  3. Pre-Disaster Mitigation (PDM): Provide funds to states, territories, Indian tribal governments, and communities for hazard mitigation planning and the implementation of mitigation projects prior to a disaster event. PDM grants are awarded on a competitive basis. Eligible sub-applicants will compete nationally for PDM grant funds.

  4. Purpose • The PDM program provides a significant opportunity to raise risk awareness and reduce the nation’s disaster losses through pre-disaster mitigation planning and the implementation of feasible, effective, and cost-efficient mitigation measures. • The PDM program provides funding to reduce loss of life as well as damage and destruction to property from natural hazards.

  5. Authorization and Appropriation • The PDM program is subject to the availability of appropriation funding, as well as any directive or restriction made with respect to such funds. • FEMA will ensure that a State will receive no less than $500,000 for sub-applications within the State that meet all FY 2008 Guidance eligibility requirements.

  6. Eligible Sub-Applicants • State-level agencies including State institutions • Federally and State-recognized Indian tribal governments • Local governments • Public colleges and universities • Private non-profit (PNP) organizations and private colleges and universities are not eligible sub-applicants.

  7. National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) If Sub-applicants have been identified through the NFIP as having a Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA), and a Flood Hazard Boundary Map (FBHM) or Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) has been issued for their specific jurisdiction, they must be participating in the NFIP, and not suspended or withdrawn from the NFIP, to be eligible for the PDM program.

  8. Allocation Due to the Federal Budget Continuing Resolution, funding for FY 08 PDM has yet to be appropriated.

  9. Mitigation Plan Requirement All sub-applicants must have a FEMA-approved hazard mitigation plan by the application deadline to be eligible to apply for project grant funding under the PDM program in accordance with 44 C.F.R. Part 201.

  10. Benefit-Cost Analysis (BCA) Sub-applicants are required to perform a BCA for each project, as well as one for each repetitive flood loss property and substantially damaged property in the sub-application.

  11. Award Process • FEMA will select for further review the highest scoring eligible sub-applicants from each State in order until the projects and/or plans within a State are no less than $500,000. • All remaining eligible sub-applications will be reordered. The Approving Federal Official shall select the highest scored eligible planning and project sub-applications for further review, in order, up to the remaining amount of funds available for the program.

  12. Award Process cont. • The selecting official may make a selection of a sub-application out of rank order based upon one or more of the following factors: • Availability of funding • Balance/distribution of funds geographically or by type of recipient • Duplication of sub-applications • Program priorities and policy factors • Other pertinent information.

  13. Eligible Planning Activities • New Plan Development • Comprehensive Review and Update The outcome of a mitigation planning grant award must result in an adopted FEMA-approved hazard mitigation plan prior to the end of the performance period.

  14. Eligible Project Activities • Voluntary acquisition of real property for conversion to open space in perpetuity • Relocation of public/private structures • Elevation of existing public/private structures to avoid coastal or riverine flooding • Structural/non-structural retrofitting of existing public or private structures to meet or exceed applicable building codes relative to hazard mitigation • Construction of safe rooms for public and private structures

  25. Flood Mitigation Assistance (FMA) Grant ProgramGuidance OverviewCFDA #97.029

  26. Flood Mitigation Assistance (FMA): FMA is a pre-disaster grant program created with the goal of reducing or eliminating claims under the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). Provides funding so that cost-effective measures are taken to reduce or eliminate the long-term risk of flood damage to structures insurable under the NFIP.

  27. FMA FY 2008 Priority The FY 2008 FMA priority is to fund flood mitigation activities that reduce or eliminate the long-term risk of flood damage to buildings, manufactured homes, and other structures insured under the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).
