Disasters will always happen. However, communities and organizations can take steps to mitigate those disasters and reduce their impacts. FEMA's hazard mitigation grant program - HMGP assistance provides funding for eligible mitigation measures that reduce disaster losses. Hazard mitigation is any sustainable action that reduces or eliminates long-term risk to people and property from future disasters.

Hazard mitigation grant program - HMGP is key to breaking the cycle of disaster damage, reconstruction, and repeated damage. The Stafford Act legally requires state, local, tribal, and territorial governments to develop and adopt FEMA-approved hazard mitigation plans as a condition for receiving certain types of non-emergency disaster assistance.
