BOA-EMT brings robust and nationally-recognized capabilities in the field of Hazard Mitigation and Resiliency. We have strong Subject Matter Expertise in FEMA-funded Mitigation funding streams including the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP), Pre-Disaster Mitigation (PDM) program, and Flood Mitigation Assistance (FMA) programs. Our team has managed over $200M in FEMA mitigation funding over the course of our careers and has attained recognition as SMEs.
This includes full life cycle grants management–development, pre-approval, implementation and closeout; post-disaster intake operations in a field setting; Joint Field Office HMGP development operations, project scoping, as well as benefit-cost analysis of a large variety of project types including buyouts, elevations, reconstructions, stormwater management projects (culvert upsizes, detention ponds, etc), wind shutter and tornado saferooms, as well as power redundancy and early warning projects.
BOA-EMT also has tried and tested real-world experience in the integration of resilience into post-disaster recovery programming, where HMGP interfaces with Public Assistance, Individual Assistance, Community Development Block Grant – Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) and local and state-funding streams. This can be a complex political and pressurized environment to navigate for the public and private sector as well as disaster survivors. BOA-EMT brings authentic best practices and suggestions to our partners and clients.
