Hazard Mitigation Planning identifies policies and actions that can be implemented over the long term to reduce the negative impacts from future disasters on lives, property, and the economy.
Under the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act (Public Law 93-288), as amended, State, Tribal, and local governments are required to develop a hazard mitigation plan as a condition for receiving certain types of non-emergency disaster assistance, including Hazard Mitigation Grant Program, Pre-Disaster Mitigation Program, and Flood Mitigation Assistance Grants.
