FEMA Mitigation Best Practices: Community Buy-In Makes the Difference in Jackson   [open pdf - 37KB]

Alternate Title: Community Buy-In Helps City of Jackson Benefits

This document is part of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Best Practices Portfolio. The Best Practices Portfolio is a collection of true stories about people and communities who have experienced disasters, and what mitigation they used to survive, rebuild, and prepare for disasters. From the document: "The City of Jackson received a $288,000 HMGP grant and state and local matching funds that allowed it to acquire 4 vacant lots and permanently remove 31 repetitively damaged structures from the flood-prone area along Central Avenue and Freeman Street." This and other individual FEMA Best Practices documents are also combined in "Mitigation Best Practices: Public and Private Sector Best Practice Stories for All Activity/Project Types in All States and Territories Relating to All Hazards [August 10, 2011]," which can be accessed at the following link: [https://www.hsdl.org/?abstract&did=683132]
