FEMA's Federal Insurance and Mitigation Administration Fact Sheet
Mitigation is the effort to reduce loss of life and property by lessening the impact of disasters. Effective mitigation measures can break the cycle of disaster damage, reconstruction, and repeated damage. FEMA’s Federal Insurance and Mitigation Administration implements a variety of programs authorized by Congress that cover the full range of natural hazards. Mitigation efforts provide value to the American people by (1) creating safer communities by reducing loss of life and property, (2) enabling individuals to recover more rapidly from flood and other disasters, and (3) lessening the financial impact on the Treasury, States, Tribes, and communities.
