  • State Multi-Hazard Mitigation Planning Guidance (Mitigation Planning "Blue Book")

    Go to Resource

    FEMA developed the State Mitigation Planning “Blue Book” to help States better understand the FEMA mitigation planning regulations cited in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) at Title 44, Chapter 1, Part 201 (44 CFR Part 201). FEMA prepared the “Blue Book” with two major objectives. First, the "Blue Book" is designed to help Federal reviewers evaluate mitigation plans from States in a fair and consistent manner. Second, the "Blue Book" is intended to help States develop new mitigation plans or modify existing ones in accordance with the requirements of the regulations cited at 44 CFR Part 201. The State “Blue Book” and Local “Blue Book” incorporate feedback provided to FEMA by State, local, and Indian Tribal officials and address issues that have arisen since the initial guidance was developed. FEMA continues to monitor the progress of State, local, and Indian Tribal entities as they develop their plans, working in partnership with them to help ensure their success.

    Environmental Assessment Owego Apalachin Administration Building Facility Construction Project Village of Owego, Tioga County, New York-4031-DR-NY February 2015///The Owego Apalachin Central School District, herein referred to as the “Subgrantee”, has requested funding from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security - Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Public Assistance (PA) Grant Program, to construct a new 15,118 square foot administration building within the community to replace the existing flood-damaged administration building. The new facility would be located at Sheldon Guile Boulevard in the Village of Owego, Tioga County, New York. Owego experienced storm damages and flooding from Tropical Storm Lee that occurred September 7, 2011 to September 11, 2011. The storm incident period was declared a major disaster by President Barack H. Obama on September 13, 2011 (amended September 23, 2011). Federal public assistance was made available to affected communities and certain nonprofit organizations per FEMA 4031-DR-NY and in accordance with the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act of 1974 (42 U.S.C. 5172), as amended. The Grantee for the proposed action is the New York State Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services. The FEMA project worksheet reference number is 4031-DR-NY PW#2000./This Final Draft EA has been prepared to analyze the potential consequences to the natural and human environment associated with the Proposed Action, the No Action Alternative, and other potential alternatives per the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) (42 United States Code [USC] 55 parts 4321 et seq., 2000), the President’s Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) implementing regulations (40 Code of Federal Regulations [CFR] 30 parts 1500 et seq., 2004), and 44 CFR Emergency Management and Assistance Ch. I Part 10.

    Draft Environmental Assessment Montoyas Arroyo Bank Stabilization Project Rio Rancho, Sandoval County, New Mexico Southern Sandoval County Arroyo Flood Control Authority FEMA HMGP-DR-4079-NM Project #8 February 2015///The nature of flood events in southern Sandoval County, New Mexico, which contains the City of Rio Rancho (Rio Rancho) is characterized by very intense, compact thunderstorms. These thunderstorms drop significant amounts of rainfall over a very short time, creating a surge of stormwater that flows down the arroyos or drainage ditches toward the Rio Grande to the west of the city. As this area of New Mexico is semi-arid, the soils in southern Sandoval County are generally highly erodible. Runoff from intense storm events can rapidly erode large segments of arroyo bank, sometimes eroding up to 40 feet laterally in one storm event, as was seen during the September 2013 flooding event in Rio Rancho./This Draft EA has been prepared to analyze the potential consequences to the natural and human environment associated with the Proposed Action, the No Action Alternative, and other potential alternatives per the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) (42 United States Code [USC] 55 parts 4321 et seq., 2000), the President’s Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) implementing regulations (40 Code of Federal Regulations [CFR] 30 parts 1500 et seq., 2004), and 44 CFR Emergency Management and Assistance Ch. I Part 10.
