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.
