ABSTRACT

Tribal Mitigation Plan Review Guide   [open pdf - 1MB]

"Mitigation Planning is the process used by tribal, state, and local government leaders to understand risks from natural hazards and to develop long-term strategies to reduce the impacts of future events on people, property, and the environment. The purpose of this 'Tribal Mitigation Plan Review Guide' (or Guide) is to help the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) assess tribal governments' mitigation plans in a fair and consistent manner and to ensure that approved tribal mitigation plans meet the requirements of the Stafford Act and Title 44 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). [...] Through the National Mitigation Planning Program, FEMA provides guidance, training, and technical assistance to support Indian tribal governments (tribal governments) in developing and implementing mitigation plans. This 'Guide' interprets and explains the Mitigation Planning regulation at 44 CFR Part 201 and is FEMA's official source for describing the requirements for developing and updating tribal mitigation plans."
