A mitigation plan is the foundation for a community's long-term strategy to reduce disaster losses and break the cycle of disaster damage, reconstruction, and repeated damage. All communities need a hazard mitigation plan. Even a small neighborhood flood can overwhelm your community. 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.
