In order for a county or municipality to receive federal funding for pre-disaster mitigation or flood mitigation assistance funds, the county must have an adopted and approved FEMA Natural Hazards Mitigation Plan. The purpose of the plan 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.
