Grants for microgrid projects are available through several FEMA Hazard Mitigation Assistance programs. FEMA has funded microgrids under the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) and is an eligible project for funding in the Building Resilient Infrastructure and Communities (BRIC) program. In order to be eligible, all Hazard Mitigation Assistance program requirements must be met, including Mitigation Planning, Technical Feasibility and Effectiveness, Cost-Effectiveness, and Environmental Planning and Historic Preservation (EHP) considerations. Fiscal Year 2021 funding opportunities for these programs will be discussed at the July 28th joint meeting of the Climate, Energy and Environment Policy Committee (CEEPC) and Chesapeake Bay and Water Resources Policy Committee (CBPC).
