Programs and Grants

There are federal grant programs that provide resources for mitigation projects. The City of New Orleans must apply for these grants to the State of Louisiana, which then submits applications to FEMA.Please note: grants are subject to limited availability and additional eligibility and match requirements. Please contact the Hazard Mitigation Office for more information. 

Flood Mitigation Assistance Program (FMA): 

FMA is a grant program administered by the federal government to reduce or eliminate claims under the National Flood Insurance Program. FMA enables state and local governments to implement measures that reduce or eliminate long term risk of flooding, through planning, project, and management cost grants.

Severe Repetitive Loss Program (SRL):

The SRL program was designed to reduce the long term risk of flood damage to Severe Repetitive Loss structures insured under the National Flood Insurance Program. A Severe Repetitive Los structure is a property that has had multiple flood insurance claims within a ten year period. The Biggert Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012 eliminated the SRL Program.

Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP):

HMGP provides funding sources to states and local governments to implement long term measures that mitigate future damage after the community has experienced a disaster. The president of the United States must declare a disaster to meet eligibility for participation in this program. In order to be eligible for HMGP funds, a community must also have an adopted Hazard Mitigation Plan. The City of New Orleans' Hazard Mitigation Plan Update is available upon request.
