Category Explanation
FEMA's Pre-Disaster Mitigation (PDM) program provides funds to States, Territories, Tribes, and communities for hazard mitigation planning and for the implementation of mitigation projects prior to a disaster event. The PDM program provides a significant opportunity to raise risk awareness and reduce the nation's disaster losses through pre-disaster mitigation planning and the implementation of feasible, effective, and cost-effective mitigation measures. The PDM program provides funding to reduce loss of life as well as damage and destruction to property from natural hazards. The Pre-Disaster Mitigation program was authorized by Part 203 of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Assistance and Emergency Relief Act (Stafford Act), 42 USC 5133, to assist States and communities to implement a sustained pre-disaster natural hazard mitigation program to reduce overall risk to the population and structures, while also reducing reliance on Federal funding from actual disaster declarations. PDM funds must be used primarily to support mitigation activities that address natural hazards, although hazard mitigation projects and plans also may address hazards caused by manmade events.
