Application Period for FEMA's Fiscal Year 2022 National Dam Safety Program Grants Opens in May

The fiscal year 2022 application period will open for two dam safety grants, the Rehabilitation of High Hazard Potential Dams (HHPD) program and National Dam Safety Program (NDSP) state assistance, in mid-May. Funding amounts will be at least similar to last year.


Both grant programs aim to provide funding to eligible applicants for dam safety efforts across the nation.

The application period closes in July 2022. FEMA is sharing this information so states and territories have visibility and can begin preparing applications. More details will be released soon.

Dams are a critical part of our nation's infrastructure, and everyone enjoy the benefits they provide, including flood protection, water supply, hydropower, irrigation, and recreation. However, dams structures are aging, and many are deteriorating across the nation, while downstream and upstream populations are increasing.

The National Dam Safety Program helpline is available 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. Eastern Time, Monday through Friday. Questions may also be emailed to FEMA-NDSP-HHPDGrants@fema.dhs.gov.
