Hazard mitigation plans serve as a strategic guide for decision makers as they commit resources to reduce the effects of natural hazards and demonstrate a commitment to reduce risks from natural hazards. In accordance with Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act, 44 CFR, §201.6, local hazard mitigation plans are updated every five years.

The State Mitigation Plan is the hazard mitigation plan approved by FEMA as a condition for the state to receive Stafford Act assistance during a Federal Disaster Declaration. The State Hazard Mitigation Plan resides in Volume I of the State Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan.

State Mitigation Plans are composed of six sections:

  • Section 1 – Introduction
  • Section 2 – Planning Process
  • Section 3 – Risk Assessment
  • Section 4 – Strategy
  • Section 5 – Coordination of Local Mitigation Planning
  • Section 6 – Maintenance

A Local Mitigation Plan is the hazard mitigation plan required of a local government acting as a sub-grantee as a condition of receiving a Hazard Mitigation Assistance project sub-grant.
