What is

Hazard

Mitigation?Hazard mitigation is defined as any sustained action taken to reduce or eliminate long-term risk to life, property and the environment from natural hazard events. Mitigation is an on-going process that occurs before, during, and after disasters and serves to break the cycle of

damage-and-repair

in

hazard-prone

 areas.

Slide11

Importance of a Plan

Q:

Why does your community need a Hazard Mitigation Plan?A: To create a framework to reduce

the negative impacts from future

natural disasters

on lives, property, and the environment.

A:

To make your community

eligible

to receive Hazard Mitigation Assistance funding

Slide12

Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP)

HMGP funding becomes available after a disaster is federally declared (by the POTUS)

California is an Enhanced State: Enhanced State Hazard Mitigation PlanMust meet standard plan requirements:

Integrated planning with agencies and stakeholders

State mitigation capabilities - reduce exposure to risk

HMA grants performance – have the capabilities to manage grant performance

HMGP = 20% of the total value of eligible damages

Projects, plans, and 5% Initiative

We will only cover

planning (7%) grants today
