ABSTRACT

FEMA Mitigation Best Practices: Hazard Mitigation Grant Pilot Provides Safe Haven for Louisiana Couple   [open pdf - 34KB]

"Hurricanes Katrina, Rita, and Wilma struck Louisiana, Texas, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida producing severe flooding and wind damage that resulted in catastrophic physical and economic impacts on these states, necessitating the need for financial assistance. The HMGP [Hazard Mitigation Grant Program] Reconstruction Pilot provided an opportunity for FEMA [Federal Emergency Management Agency] to work with States and communities to incorporate mitigation directly into the reconstruction process. This resulted in more disaster-resistant communities as well as another option for the local and State governments that are responsible for making decisions and identifying appropriate mitigation measures for their communities."
