Hazard Mitigation Grant Program - Post Fire
The June 28, 2018 Silver Jackets informational webinar presentation was given by Sarah McGarvey, Senior Mitigation Specialist with FEMA about the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) - Post Fire.
On June 5, 2018, FEMA announced availability of funds under the HMGP Post Fire for states, territories, and federally-recognized tribes that had a Fire Management Assistance declaration in FY 2017 and 2018. Eligible states with declarations are located in FEMA Regions IV, VI, VII, VIII, IX and X in the following 20 states - AZ, CA, CO, FL, GA, KS, KY, MT, NC, NM, NV, OK, OR, SC, SD, TN, TX, UT, WA, and WY. Funding can be used to implement hazard mitigation measures in communities after wildfire disasters including hazards such as flood or erosion.
The Silver Jackets webinar presentation was offered to active Silver Jacket teams for those states with Fire Management Assistance declarations. Silver Jackets teams may be a useful resource for the State when identifying effective mitigation projects through their collective expertise and knowledge about wildfire impacts and mitigation needs.
