Fiscal Year 2024 Multi-State and National Earthquake Assistance (MSNEA)

The National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program (NEHRP) Multi-State and National Earthquake Assistance (MSNEA) grant program makes funds available to nonprofit organizations and institutions of higher education that possess the critical skills necessary to develop and implement regional (multi-state) and/or national earthquake risk mitigation activities.

FEMA recognizes that earthquakes cannot be prevented, but their impacts on life, property, and the economy can be managed. The MSNEA grant program prioritizes reducing the risks to life and property from future earthquakes in the U.S. through the establishment and maintenance of an effective earthquake hazards reduction program.

FEMA awards competitive grants to nonprofit organizations and institutions of higher education that possess the critical skills necessary to develop and implement regional (multi-state) and/or national earthquake risk mitigation activities (See Appendix A.), on behalf of states and territories participating in the FEMA NEHRP State Assistance program (See Appendix D.). This notice funds multi-state and national activities and is not intended to assist any one particular state or territory.
