Cover photo for the document: State Mitigation Planning Key Topics Bulletins

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) released the State Mitigation Plan Review Guide in March 2015.  This Guide, which became effective March 6, 2016, presents FEMA’s official policy on and interpretation of the natural hazard mitigation planning requirements for states established in the Code of Federal Regulations (44 CFR Part 201).   The State Mitigation Planning Key Topics Bulletins (“Bulletins”) are a series of brief documents aimed at informing states on how to meet the regulatory and policy requirements described in the Guide.  The series covers all components of the mitigation planning process.  The Bulletins are not intended to clarify policy, but instead to provide state officials approaches and resources for updating state hazard mitigation plans.
