Emergency Management - Pre - Disaster Mitigation Competitive

Grant Program (PDM - C)

The PDM-C grant has not been funded for 2012. FEMA is awaiting an approved budget from Congress before opening the grant. We will inform you when this grant opens.

Program Overview

The Pre-Disaster Mitigation (PDM) program provides funds to states, territories, Indian tribal governments,communities, and universities for hazard mitigation planning and the implementation of mitigation projects prior to a disaster event.

Funding these plans and projects reduces overall risks to the population and structures, while also reducing reliance on funding from actual disaster declarations. PDM grants are to be awarded on a competitive basis and without reference to state allocations, quotas, or other formula-based allocation of funds.
