FEMA Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP)

Smart hazard mitigation calls for careful planning to inform project selection and implementation. We assist in selection criteria and scope development. We also recommend ways to use the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program and other federal dollars through mixed-use funding streams and public-private partnerships to confirm your recovery and mitigation initiatives are comprehensive.  

Disaster recovery can be complex. The most valuable commodity in a flood of options is a simple, straightforward solution. When your team members encounter a barrier, we offer best practices and optimal solutions based on real-world experience. 

FEMA Public Assistance (PA)

HORNE Federal approaches FEMA Public Assistance funding management as a long-term, collaborative effort between key stakeholders. The process takes the breadth and depth of requirements and details impacting each funding recipient and crystallizes them into direct, actionable guidance that results in a successful closeout. 

Our efforts create transparency and sustainable processes, reducing your risk of deobligation. Our goal is the same as yours — to make the greatest possible lasting impact for the recipient with public assistance grant funding.  

We respond rapidly to funnel recovery dollars into communities.

FEMA Individual Assistance (IA)

When many residents are displaced due to a disaster, assisting communities with relocation to emergency and temporary housing solutions is critical to recovery. Our work in Transitional Sheltering Assistance programs provides short-term housing options for displaced survivors transitioning from emergency shelters to temporary or permanent housing. This Direct Housing Assistance mission is structured under FEMA’s Individuals and Households program. 

HUD Community Development Block Grant – Disaster recovery (CDBG-DR)

HORNE Federal has experience with CDBG-DR funding across multiple states and territories. Working by your side, we manage housing, infrastructure and economic development program implementation, using best practices and processes that speed up your recovery. We help you satisfy regulatory requirements, avoid deobligation and maximize the impact of the funding. 


HORNE Federal’s CDBG-MIT expertise extends across numerous states and territories, allowing us to tailor mitigation strategies to the specific challenges faced by each community. Whether creating innovative hazard mapping systems or executing large-scale infrastructure enhancements, we bring innovation, experience and dedication to every project.
