Tribal Multi-Hazard Mitigation Planning Guidance

Cover photo for the document: Tribal Multi-Hazard Mitigation Planning Guidance
Hazard mitigation planning is the process State, local, and tribal governments use to identify risks and vulnerabilities associated with natural disasters, and develop long-term strategies for protecting people, resources, and property in future hazard events. This planning process involves Tribal members and other affected stakeholders, and results in a mitigation plan with a strategy for breaking the cycle of disaster damage, reconstruction, and repeated damage. The mitigation plan also identifies mitigation actions and projects to implement the mitigation strategy. Under the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 (Public Law 106-390), State, local and tribal governments are required to develop a hazard mitigation plan as a condition for receiving certain types of non-emergency disaster assistance and FEMA grants to implement mitigation projects.
