Emergency Management - FEMA 2010 Pre Disaster Mitigation Competitive Grant Program (PDM-C)

Notice of Interest

The Utah Division of Homeland Security (DHLS) is requiring all new prospective sub-grant applicants to complete a Notice of Interest (NOI) for each proposed eligible PDM-C mitigation activity.  The NOI is detailed and reflects what will be required in the development of a competitive project.  The NOI is NOT required If you are resubmitting an application from PDM 2009. 

NOIs must be received by Utah DHLS no later than Friday, August 14, 2009.

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

It is important to remember that the PDM-C is a nationwide mitigation competitive grant program.  A competitive project must:

  • address the most imminent or reoccurring natural hazards,
  • have a source of non-federal matching funds (75/25) that will be available at the time of the grant award,
  • have a high benefit-cost ratio using the FEMA BCA models and,
  • the Federal online E-Grant application system must be used to apply for the grant.  (http://www.fema.gov/government/grant/egrants.shtm)
