Hazard Mitigation Grant Program

Adopted under US Public Law 93-288, Section 404, the Commonwealth of the Northern Marianas Islands (CNMI) utilizes two of the three Hazard Mitigation Assistance grant programs under the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA):

    1. Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP)
    2. Pre-Disaster Mitigation Grant Program (PDM)

Following a major disaster declaration, HMGP continues its services based on the 36 month period of performance (POP). On the other hand, PDM grants are funded annually by US Congressional appropriations. In conjunction of both programs, the overall goal is to reduce risk to the population and structures from future hazard events.

HMGP and PDM are actively funding the following typhoon disaster designated numbers established by FEMA:

    • DR 4235 – Typhoon Soudelor (Declared August 5th, 2015)
    • DR 4396 – Typhoon Mangkhut (Declared September 29, 2018)
    • DR 4404 – Super Typhoon Yutu (Declared October 26, 2018)

HMGP and PDM will continue to implement approved mitigation projects under DR- 4235, 4396, and 4404 to break the cycle of disaster damage, reconstruction, and repeated damage while raising public awareness about reducing future losses before disaster strikes.
