Hazard Mitigation Grant Program Appeals Database

Metadata Updated: May 5, 2024

The Hazard Mitigation Grant Program provides grants to state, local, tribal and territorial governments to implement long-term hazard mitigation measures after a major disaster declaration. The purpose of the HMGP is to reduce the loss of life and property due to natural disasters and to enable mitigation measures to be implemented during the immediate recovery from a disaster.rnrnAn eligible applicant may appeal any FEMA determination regarding applications submitted for funding under the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program. The appeal process allows applicants to request a reconsideration of the decision against program requirements. There are two levels of appeals. The Regional Administrator decides first appeals. If the FEMA Regional Administrator denies the appeal, within 60 days, the the applicant may submit a second appeal. The FEMA Region will forward the applicant’s second appeal with a written recommendation to the Deputy Associate Administrator of Mitigation at FEMA Headquarters. If FEMA approves an appeal, FEMA will take the appropriate action to implement the decision.rnrnFor additional information about the appeals process, refer to Section 206.440 in the Code of Federal Regulations – Hazard Mitigation Grant Program. rnrnThe Appeals Database is an online, searchable database containing FEMA responses to applicant appeals for assistance. The database houses HMGP second appeal records since 1988 and first level appeals since 2011. The purpose of the database is to inform the public on how program requirements are applied.rnrnFor more information on the terms used in the appeal database, users can reference the Hazard Mitigation Assistance Program Digest for a brief summary of the basic program elements.rnrnFEMA Hazard Mitigation Assistance datasets are also available through OpenFEMA.
