2021 California Hazard Mitigation Grant Program

November 10, 2021

Notice of Funding Opportunity

The CA Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES) has announced the 2021 Notice of Funding Opportunity for FEMA’s Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP).

The Hazard Mitigation Grant Program provides funding for communities to implement mitigation activities to reduce risk to life and property from natural hazards. In CA, natural hazards include wildfire, earthquake, drought, extreme weather, flooding, and other impacts of climate change. HMGP funding can also support the development of Local Hazard Mitigation Plans (LHMP) and project scoping activities. Projects must be eligible, feasible, and cost-effective per FEMA’s Hazard Mitigation Assistance Guidance. Projects must be stand-alone activities that will reduce risk as their primary benefit, but Cal OES strongly encourages the submission of projects that achieve multiple benefits.

Please review the Notice of Funding Opportunity for further details including information about project and subapplication eligibility, funding priorities, due dates, and more. This information and additional resources are also available on the Cal OES website.

We encourage you to reach out to hma@caloes.ca.gov with questions.
