Hazard Mitigation Grant Program
The Minnesota Department of Public Safety Homeland Security Emergency Management (HSEM) division has announced the availability of hazard mitigation grant funding to help protect your community against natural disasters. Building a tornado safe room, buying repetitively flooded properties, or burying power lines are just a few of the ways the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) can help you reduce the risk of natural hazards.
Minnesota has had a major disaster every nine-and-a-half months over the last eight years. Presidential disaster declarations provide HMGP funds to communities statewide. Many communities have successfully used these funds. Learn more and apply for the grant
