  • MT DES - Mitigation
  • June 22 2021

The 2020 fire season saw over 130,000 acres burn across Montana. FEMA, recognizing the impacts from such devastating wildfires, has made a grant source available under the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program. The HMGP Post-Fire Grant is to help communities implement hazard mitigation measures following the declaration of a Fire Management Assistance Grant (FMAG).  Wildfires can destroy homes, businesses, infrastructure, and natural resources. They can also exacerbate secondary hazards and leave areas prone to floods, erosion, and mudflows for many years. The key purpose of this grant program is to enact mitigation measures that reduce the risk of loss of life and property from future disasters. Montana Disaster and Emergency services is excited to announce the HMGP PF grant application period is open.

Montana DES will be accepting applications for Fire Mitigation Grants (FM-5324) until September 10, 2021. There is $2,361,305.00 available for mitigation project(s) throughout the state, under this opportunity. However, preference will be given to counties that received Fire Management Assistance Grants during the 2020 fire season.  This includes:

  • Gallatin County - Bridger Foothills Fire-
  • Custer, Powder River, Rosebud County - Snider/Rice Fire
  • Garfield County - Huff Fire
  • Musselshell, Yellowstone County - Bobcat Fire
  • Stillwater, Yellowstone County - Falling Star Fire

Please fill out and submit a Notice of Intent to MT DES. Applications will be completed through the FEMA eGrants System. If you need access, please reach out to the Mitigation Team.
