You are here

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Hazard Mitigation Assistance Division, in partnership with the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy's (EERE) Weatherization and Intergovernmental Programs Office, hosted two webinars to inform state, local, tribal, and utility stakeholders on how to build resiliency in the energy sector through innovative energy mitigation projects that incorporate energy efficiency, renewable energy and storage, and microgrids. 

The first webinar highlighted real-world federal and state funded energy projects as well as how to leverage federal grant funding available through FEMA’s FY19 Pre-Disaster Mitigation (PDM) grant program, which will be replaced by Building Resilient Infrastructure and Communities (BRIC), and DOE’s State Energy Program.
