HMPG deadline extended

The application deadline for the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) in connection with disaster DR 1816 (December ice storm) has been extended to Friday, October 30, 2009. This deadline has been changed to accommodate scheduled training for Benefit-Cost Analysis (BCA). The BCA is a FEMA requirement for all mitigation grants. A formal announcement for the BCA training will be made in the near future. This training will take place here at Vermont Emergency Management offices in Waterbury over a two-day period in mid October; all HMGP applicants are strongly encouraged to attend this important training session.
