Cover photo for the document: Tribal Mitigation Plan Review Guide

The Tribal Mitigation Plan Review Guide (Guide) is FEMA’s updated policy on, and interpretation of, the requirements for Tribal Standard and Enhanced Mitigation Planning found at 44 Code of Federal Regulations Part 201, Mitigation Planning. The intended use of the Guide is to facilitate consistent evaluation and approval of tribal mitigation plans as well as to facilitate compliance with the mitigation planning requirements when developing or updating plans. A FEMA-approved tribal mitigation plan is one of the conditions of eligibility for certain FEMA assistance, such as Public Assistance Categories C through G and Hazard Mitigation Assistance (HMA) grants. The Tribal Mitigation Plan Review Guide will become effective as FEMA’s official policy for FEMA Tribal Mitigation Plan Review on December 5, 2018. The Tribal Multi-Hazard Mitigation Planning Guidance (2010) is still available here and in effect through December 4, 2018.
