Hazard Mitigation Plans

Natural Hazard Mitigation Plans:

1) identify the actions and policies that can be implemented over the long term to reduce risk and future losses; and 2) form the foundation for a long-term risk management strategy.  The plans create the framework for risk-informed decision making to reduce damages to lives, property, and the economy from future disasters.  For States and communities, the development of Natural Hazard Mitigation Plans is also a requirement to be eligible for FEMA mitigation grants.
