FEMA Announces Funding Opportunity for Fiscal Year (FY) 2014 Hazard Mitigation Assistance Grants

Today, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is announcing $112 million in funding available through two Hazard Mitigation Assistance (HMA) grant programs: Flood Mitigation Assistance (FMA) and Pre-Disaster Mitigation (PDM). These two grant programs assist state, local, tribal, and territorial governments in strengthening our nation’s ability to reduce the potential cost of natural disasters to communities and their citizens.

FEMA’s Hazard Mitigation Assistance grant programs provide states, tribes, territories, and local governments funding for eligible mitigation activities to strengthen our nation’s ability to reduce disaster losses and protect life and property from future disaster damages.

Read more…

The Flood Mitigation Assistance grant program provides funds on an annual basis so that measures can be taken to reduce or eliminate risk of flood damage to buildings insured under the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). The FY 2014 Flood Mitigation Assistance grants will continue to focus on reducing or eliminating claims under the NFIP with a focus on mitigation planning and the mitigation of severe repetitive loss properties.

The Pre-Disaster Mitigation grant program provides funds on an annual basis for hazard mitigation planning and the implementation of mitigation projects prior to a disaster. The goal of the Pre-Disaster Mitigation grant program is to reduce overall risk to the population and structures, while at the same time, also reducing reliance on Federal funding from actual disaster declarations. The FY 2014 Pre-Disaster Mitigation grants will continue to focus on implementing a sustained pre-disaster natural hazard mitigation program and provide the grant funding set aside as required in the Stafford Act to states and tribes to support overall mitigation planning and projects.

Both Hazard Mitigation Assistance FY 2014 Funding Opportunity Announcements can be found at www.grants.gov. Eligible applicants must apply for funding through the Mitigation eGrants system on the FEMA Grants Portal, which is accessible at https://portal.fema.gov. FEMA will open the application period on April 21, 2014. All applications must be submitted no later than 3:00 p.m. EDT on July 25, 2014.

Further information on these grant programs is available at http://www.fema.gov/hazard-mitigation-assistance.

If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact FEMA’s Intergovernmental Affairs Division at (202) 646-3444 or at FEMA-IGA@fema.dhs.gov.

Last July when the Route 35 Reconstruction Project commenced, the NJ Department of Transportation sent a notice by mail to property owners adjacent to the highway. The notice addressed the State’s Right-of-Way and called for the property owners to remove any materials, fencing, irrigation or lighting systems, etc. that are encroaching on State property. The Right-of-Way generally extends 10 feet off the edge of the pavement or face of curb, but property owners are strongly urged to check the property deed or municipal tax map to confirm the distance as this will vary throughout the island.

While this still remains a problem for some properties, a growing concern is the number of sump pumps or roof downspouts being discharged into the roadway through a connection in the curb. These discharge pipes are in violation of NJ law and will not be re-connected. As curbs are being replaced along the Route 35 corridor, these existing pipes will be cut off by the nature of construction.
