HGA has successfully provided grant funds matching services to multiple state and local jurisdictions using HUD CDBG-DR, FEMA Hazard Mitigation Assistance (HMA), FEMA Public Assistance (PA), Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), capital outlay, non-profit, and Federal Housing Administration (FHA) funds. By leveraging all available funding, we are able to alleviate cost shares for our clients and help them fund additional projects for a more comprehensive recovery.
HGA’s fund matching expertise provides tangible results. For example, in helping develop a state-level client’s FEMA HMGP Global Match strategy, HGA negotiated an agreement with FEMA that allowed additional HMGP match credit for acquisitions and buyouts that saved the state over $100M in CDBG-DR funding for use on other recovery efforts. Additionally HGA implemented the state’s FEMA PA Match program providing over $115M in eligible, compliant “local match” using CDBG-DR funding. This included reviewing over 4,000 individual FEMA PA Project Worksheets (PWs) to approve match payments for each PW.
