GreenVest was proud to present at Prince George’s County Office of Emergency Management’s (OEM’s) recent workshop providing information to prospective 2022 Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Hazard Mitigation Assistance applicants. GV, a certified Prince George’s County-Based Small Business was invited to speak by the agency after assisting the County’s Department of the Environment with developing several of these grant applications in 2021.
GV presented on the Benefit-Cost Analysis (BCA). We introduced its basic concepts and discussed the BCA process, illustrating our presentation with the results of two real-world projects. This workshop provided information on requirements and guidance to those who plan to apply for the upcoming round of FEMA grants in 2022. Recognizing the unique challenges of the FEMA grants’ applications, OEM took a proactive approach to provide assistance to prospective sub-applicants and guide them through the application process.
FEMA’s Hazard Mitigation Assistance Grants provide funds for projects that strive to reduce community vulnerability to the effects of disasters and create safer communities that are less reliant on financial recovery assistance. The grants also promote individual and community safety, resistance, and vitality before, during, and after a disaster.
