Hazard Mitigation Grant Program

  • Basic Info

The Hazard Mitigation Grant Program will assist local governments within eligible counties with their portion of the required match for FEMA’s Hazard Mitigation Grant Program.  FEMA’s HMGP requires a 25% non-federal match, the Georgia Emergency Management and Homeland Security Agency covers 10% of this match and the local governments are responsible for the remaining 15%. The disaster events of 2017 weakened revenues within these communities which were needed to pay the local match causing community recovery efforts to stall.
