The Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management manages multiple federal grant programs as listed below. These programs offer opportunities for eligible subrecipients within the State of New Hampshire to develop and enhance emergency management capabilities.
Emergency Management Performance Grant (EMPG)
The Emergency Management Performance Grant (EMPG) Program supports building and maintaining a comprehensive, all-hazards emergency preparedness system. This includes assisting State and local governments and other eligible agencies to build and sustain the core capabilities outlined in the National Preparedness Goal (NPG). New Hampshire’s EMPG Program focuses on Planning, Organization/Administrative (project-driven), Equipment, and Maintenance/Sustainment.

Hazardous Materials Emergency Preparedness (HMEP)
The purpose of the Hazardous Materials Emergency Preparedness (HMEP) grant is to protect against the risks to life, property, and the environment that are inherent in the transportation of hazardous material in intrastate, interstate, and foreign commerce (Title 49 U.S.C. § 5101). The HMEP grant supports the emergency preparedness and response efforts of States, federally recognized Native American tribes, and Territories that deal with hazardous materials emergencies, specifically those involving transportation. This grant also aids grantees in meeting the requirements of § 301 and §303 of the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act of 1986 (Title 42 U.S.C. Chapter 116).

Hazard Mitigation Assistance (HMA)
Hazard Mitigation Assistance (HMA) Programs provide funding for eligible activities that are consistent with the National Mitigation Framework’s Long-Term Vulnerability Reduction capability. HMA programs reduce community vulnerability to disasters and their effects, promote individual and community safety and resilience, and promote community vitality after an incident. Furthermore, HMA programs reduce response and recovery resource requirements in the wake of a disaster or incident, which results in a safer community that is less reliant on external financial assistance. Hazard mitigation is the only phase of emergency management specifically dedicated to breaking the cycle of damage, reconstruction, and repeated damage. Hazard Mitigation Assistance includes the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP), Pre-Disaster Mitigation (PDM), and Flood Mitigation Assistance (FMA).
