DEMA's Mitigation Grant Process:

 

Notice Of Intent (NOI) period

Building Resilient Infrastructure and Communities (BRIC) and Flood Mitigation Assistance (FMA) grants always run concurrently. The Notice of Intent (NOI) period for the State opens the first week of June and closes the first week of September every year, starting in 2020.

 

For Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) grants, the NOI period starts upon receipt of a federally declared disaster in Arizona and closes 60 to 120 days after the Declaration (determined by the magnitude and complexity of disaster).

 

For Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) – Post Fire grants, the NOI period opens the second week of October and closes the second week of November every year, IF and FMAG is declared in the state.

 

Review & Ranking Panel

Upon issuance of a Notice of Funding Opportunities (NOFO) by FEMA and/or announcement of a federally declared disaster/FMAG within the state, a Review & Ranking Panel, comprised of representatives and subject matter experts from throughout the state’s agencies and political sub-divisions, will convene to review and then rank the NOIs based upon State and FEMA criteria.

 

If interested in participating in an R&R Panel, please contact [email protected].

 

Please note that contractors and/or individuals who have submitted an NOI for that grant cycle cannot participate in the review.

 

Application Development and Application Submission

Applicants, who’s NOI have been recommended by the Ranking & Review Panel to continue in the process, will be asked to create and submit an application.

 

Deadlines for application submission will be based upon the magnitude of the submissions.

 

Upon receipt of an application, Mitigation and Subject Matter Experts (SME) will review applications and begin a dialogue with the Applicant in order to assist in developing a better and more complete application.

 

Grant Submission

Mitigation will submit complete applications to FEMA for potential award and funding. During this process, Mitigation, as well as the applicant, will continue to provide needed information to FEMA, if required.

 

Grant Award

Upon receipt of an award for a specific grant, Mitigation will notify the applicant and begin to manage the grant award. Mitigation and applicants are required to submit quarterly reports on both the performance and financial aspects of the grant to FEMA. Periodic site visits and meetings will occur.

 

Project Period of Performance

Upon award of the grant, the applicant will initiate and complete the project according to the approved scope of work, and within the agreed upon period of performance or timeline.

 

Grant Closeout

Upon completion of the grant project, Mitigation and FEMA inspectors will complete a site inspection and begin the closeout process. As of 2015, all awarded HMA grants are audited by State Auditors.
