Public Assistance Grant Management

When disaster strikes your community or organization, federal recovery grants can make the crucial difference between recovery and years of economic devastation. Enlisting the assistance of a disaster recovery expert can increase the speed of your recovery efforts immeasurably. Our team worked with hundreds of organizations, including state and local governments, school boards, eligible private non-profits, public utilities, and others across the country, to maximize and expedite federal funding through the FEMA Public Assistance Grant Program (PA).

At Tidal Basin, our core strengths — hands-on expertise with FEMA PA Grant Management, a long history of client advocacy and retention, and dedication to enabling a full and efficient financial recovery — make us an invaluable addition to any recovery team. Our experienced staff members are distinguished experts in FEMA PA eligibility and have previously served in roles such as Former FEMA Regional Administrator, FEMA Director of Recovery, State Director of Recovery, and FEMA Regional Chief of Public Assistance. Though distinct in their individual areas of expertise, collectively, the Tidal Basin consultants bring a wealth of hands-on experience and knowledge covering every aspect of the FEMA PA Grant Management Program.

Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP)

FEMA offers a variety of disaster assistance programs, each with different eligibility requirements. Each area of hazard mitigation funding is a distinct program with significant variations in scope, purpose, and funding sources. Our team can guide applicants through the grant process to assist organizations and communities in reducing or eliminating long-term risks to people and property from future disasters.
