​Resources - Mitigation Planning Guidances

FEMA Hazard Mitigation Planning
Local mitigation plans look at natural hazards that may affect jurisdictions such as local governments and suggest mitigation actions to reduce losses from those hazards. Departments within local governments, including emergency managers, mitigation planners, community and economic development planners, floodplain managers, and other stakeholders, may find this most useful.
This website provides several resources to help update local mitigation plans and support ongoing implementation, such as:
