State Hazard Mitigation Plans
Under the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000, all U.S. states and territories are required to prepare a hazard mitigation plan that addresses the need to reduce or eliminate the effects of natural hazards. The plans are required to be updated every three years. Once the plans are approved by FEMA, the state is eligible for an increased federal share of the disaster. Approval of an enhanced plan qualifies a state for increased federal hazard mitigation grant funds up to 20% of a declared disaster declaration.
