Tribal Mitigation Planning Handbook

The Tribal Mitigation Planning Handbook (Handbook) provides practical approaches and advice for Tribal governments as they develop their hazard mitigation plans. The Handbook is organized around the seven recommended steps for developing a Tribal mitigation plan. It also provides considerations for how to implement the mitigation plan, advance mitigation activities, and incorporate risk reduction into other Tribal plans and programs. The Handbook is a companion to the Tribal Mitigation Plan Review Guide, released by FEMA in 2017.


The Handbook also includes three appendices, Resources and References, Sample Planning Framework, and Process Planning Worksheets. In addition to the Handbook, a set of the Process Planning Worksheets can be downloaded separately.
