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 went effective as FEMA’s official policy for FEMA Tribal Mitigation Plan Review on December 5, 2018.
The Local Mitigation Plan Review Guide provides guidance for Federal and State officials responsible for reviewing Local Mitigation Plans in a fair and consistent manner, and to ensure approved Local Mitigation Plans meet the requirements of the Stafford Act and Title 44 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) §201.6.1. This Local Mitigation Plan Review Guide is FEMA’s official source for defining the requirements of original and updated Local Mitigation Plans.
