Q: What disaster do I go to for entering a plan(s) in the plans repository?

A disaster needs to be selected but it is of no consequence which one. Use the Plans Repository to enter a new plan or to edit an existing plan.

  • When a plan is selected in the Disaster Overview Section > Grantee Information tab; that disaster is added/listed to the Disaster tab for that plan in the Plans Repository.
  • When a plan is selected in the Application Development section > Applicant Information tab > Sub-grantee Mitigation Plan area, the project is added/listed to the Projects tab for that plan in the Plans Repository.


Q: How do I enter a plan for a town/community that does not have a FIPS Code?

You can do one of the following:

  1. Enter the plan in NEMIS-MT separately for each county or tribal entity included in the commission's plan (with plans attached to each). Note the county or tribal entity as the plan applicant/author.
  2. Select one county/tribal entity to be represented as the applicant/author for the jurisdictions that have adopted the plan (if the Tribal or State Grantee approves).


Q: Who should I contact if a place or public entity is not included in the Lookup Applicant search results?

Contact the Regional NEMIS Point of Contact as he/she has the authorization to add records.


Q: How do I add a jurisdiction to a Multi-hazard Multijurisdictional Mitigation Plan?
