Alternate Title: City of Peoria and Peoria County Acquisitions and Relocations

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: "Acquisition and relocation of frequently flood damaged buildings have been taking place in the City of Peoria and unincorporated Peoria County for nearly 15 years. Beginning with FEMA's Section 1362 flood prone property acquisition program in 1982 and continuing through today's Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP), the City, County, and Park District have acquired, relocated, and demolished dozens of structures and restored an open floodplain along a 25 mile reach of the Illinois River." 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]
