Natural Hazard Mitigation Plans

The purpose of a NHMP is to identify the types of natural hazards that impact a jurisdiction, to assess each jurisdiction’s vulnerability to those hazards, and to formulate mitigation strategies that will lessen the severity of natural disasters by protecting human life and property.  Every five (5) years, plans must be reviewed and updated to remain active.  In order to receive federal funding for pre-disaster mitigation funds, counties must have an adopted and approved Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Natural Hazards Mitigation Plan (NHMP).

North Central Illinois Council of Governments has completed a draft of the Bureau, LaSalle, Marshall, Putnam, and Stark Counties Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan.
