FEMA 2016 Pre-Disaster Mitigation (PDM) Competitive Grant Program

Notice of Interest

The Utah Division of Emergency Management (DEM) is announcing that all new prospective applicants are required to complete a Notice of Interest (NOI) for each proposed eligible PDM mitigation activity. A completed NOI is NOT required IF you are resubmitting a previous PDM application; in lieu of the NOI, you must email us to say you intend to use an application which was not awarded during a previous year.

Utah DEM is NOW accepting NOIs. To be considered for the 2016 PDM Grant cycle, NOI must be received by DEM no later than April 15, 2016.

Utah DEM, Mitigation and Recovery Section, will review the NOI for basic eligibility requirements, then provide notification of our determination. Only applications that have been approved through the StateNOI process will be accepted.

The FY 2016 PDM application cycle opens March 15, 2016. Grant applications must be submitted through eGrants to DEM by May 15, 2016.

It is important to remember that PDM funds are awarded on a nationally competitive basis. A competitive project must:

  • mitigate a natural hazard;

  • address the most imminent or reoccurring natural hazards;

  • have a source of non-federal matching funds (at least 25% local funds) that will be available at the time of the grant award;

  • have a benefit-cost ratio >1 using the FEMA BCA Model 5.2.1 and,

  • the Federal online eGrants application system must be used to apply for the grant. (http://www.fema.gov/government/grant/hma/egrants.shtm)

    • Must have a DUNS and EIN Number to apply
