The Hazard Elimination and Loss Prevention program, also known as H.E.L.P., is meant as a full implementation of the FEMA Hazard Mitigation Assistance (HMA) grant programs. The MCC is the team lead for the H.E.L.P. alliance, which consists of the MCC, The Elevated Studio, and Blue Ocean Analytics. Communities that contract the H.E.L.P. alliance to implement the HMA programs (either FMA or HMGP) get a full implementation: Community outreach, stakeholder application completion and screening, community application, and overseeing each grant projects full post award implementation.
HMA requires the community be on board and willing to contract the H.E.L.P. team. For individuals who want to elevate their home without a grant, and independent of the community, or for communities who want parts of the H.E.L.P. program (and not the full implementation), the MCC has a H.E.L.P. "menu" where you can pick which parts you would like assistance with. The H.E.L.P. website and menu is coming soon and a link will be found below.
