ABSTRACT

FEMA Mitigation Best Practices: Planning Advantage   [open pdf - 32KB]

Alternate Title: Planning Advantage Flood Mitigation

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. This Best Practice Story describes that, "Federal requirements since 2000 have called for local jurisdictions to have multi-hazard mitigation plans in place to be eligible for FEMA project grants. At the local level, developing a hazard mitigation plan can not only meet the requirement, but it can also be advantageous to the community." 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]
