Mitigation’s Value to Society
  • Mitigation creates safer communities by reducing loss of life and property.
  • Mitigation enables individuals and communities to recover more rapidly from disasters.
  • Mitigation lessens the financial impact of disasters on individuals, the Treasury, state, local and tribal communities.

PDM Mitigation Plans

Hazard Mitigation Plans

    • strategy for breaking the cycle of disaster damage, reconstruction, and repeated damage
    • a framework for developing feasible and cost-effective mitigation projects.
  • New Plan Development
  • Comprehensive Review and Update
    • A planning grant award must result in an adopted FEMA-approved hazard mitigation plan prior to the end of the 3-year performance period.
    • All Hazard Mitigation Plans must be updated every 5 years to maintain funding eligibility.
