Hazard Mitigation Assistance Grants Forum
The purpose of this forum is to create a place to encourage communities to engage in hazard mitigation, promote project success stories, and share lessons learned from grant application, implementation, and closeout.
Representatives from communities at all levels including state, federal, local, tribal, non-governmental organizations, and the private sector are encouraged to contribute information to assist counterparts across the country as they plan mitigation projects for their community. This can be a tremendous resource for those who are not well versed in the components of FEMA’s Hazard Mitigation Assistance Grant programs.
This forum relies on your contribution as a stakeholder for ideas and discussion, so login, contribute, and let others know about this resource.
