LINCROFT,N.J. -- 在重大的灾害发生后,FEMA自然灾害减灾计划为地方、州和部落政府部门提供了重要的协助,加速了恢复速度并保护以后灾难再次发生时的生命和财产安全。 通过自然灾害减灾计划,联邦紧急事物管理署为州提供资金,以启动灾后恢复期间的减灾措施实施。 只要项目适合州和地方政府减灾政策,自然灾害减灾计划可同时为公共和私有所属项目提供资金。资金被发放到州里进行分配。 项目示例:  从易发生灾害的地区获取并转移结构,例如在Sayreville花费了2950万美元购买了易受淹的房屋。 更新结构以保护其免受洪灾、强风、地震或其他自然灾害的侵袭。 建筑某些类型的小型本地洪灾控制项目。 在易发生旋风的地区学校内建造安全房间。 帮助州、地方或部落政府开发减灾计划。重大自然灾害过后,在州政府的申请下,FEMA 发放自然灾害减灾计划联邦资金。 基于FEMA在每次重大自然灾害花费公共和个体协助项目资金的数额,自然灾害减灾计划的分配比例使用一个大致的范围。
