National Disaster Mitigation Program Funding

Emergency Management BC (EMBC) is accepting proposals from local governments for the National Disaster Mitigation Program (NDMP). Interested parties have until 4:00 p.m. on August 25, 2017 to submit proposals and supporting documentation to EMBC.

The components of the NDMP, including program guidelines, proposal forms and risk assessment templates are available on the Public Safety Canada website.  Please note, if applying for streams 2-4, eligibility for the previous stream must be met. If submitting a Stream 2 proposal, please indicate whether the requirements for Stream 1 have been met.

Completed NDMP Project Proposal Forms and Risk Assessment Information Templates (if required) may be submitted prior to 4:00 p.m. on August 25, 2017.

Those who previously submitted expressions of interest during the May 2016 call for proposals may still pursue funding by following the steps above and submitting necessary proposal forms and supporting documentation. Any questions regarding the NDMP and this funding process may be directed to the EMBC Disaster Mitigation Program.

Background

The federal government, in 2014, allocated $200 million over five years to establish the National Disaster Mitigation Program. While provinces and territories are the eligible recipients of this federal support, they are also able to redistribute funding to other entities, including local governments. In British Columbia, Emergency Management BC is tasked with administering NDMP funding received from Public Safety Canada.
The NDMP includes four project streams:

  • Risk Assessments;
  • Flood Mapping;
  • Mitigation Planning; and,
  • Investments in Non-Structural and Small-Scale Structural Mitigation Projects.
