This Handbook is intended for use by State, local, tribal, and private, non-profit Applicants for assistance, FEMA and State PA Group Supervisors, and FEMA and State PA Program Project Specialists. The Handbook can be used to identify potentially feasible mitigation measures that can be implemented during the repair and rebuilding of damaged facilities after a disaster. The Handbook applies to public and private, non-profit facilities eligible for funding under the PA Program and focuses on projects that are commonly eligible for hazard mitigation funding under the program. Due to the urgency in repairing damaged facilities after a disaster, long-term mitigation opportunities are frequently not fully explored, and hazard mitigation funding opportunities through the PA Program are often not fully used. The Handbook can also be used as a resource for mitigation measures that may be eligible for funding under other mitigation grant programs, some of which are noted above.
