Hazard mitigation is any action taken to reduce or eliminate long-term risk to people and property from natural disasters. FEMA provides funding through a variety of programs to help Grantees and Subgrantees in mitigation efforts through its Public Assistance program and its Hazard Mitigation Assistance programs. FEMA Hazard Mitigation programs share the common objective of striving to create safer communities by reducing the risks to loss of life and property.
The NRECA Hazard Mitigation Assistance Toolkit provides the members with a comprehensive compendium of FEMA Hazard Mitigation Assistance policies and program information. For more information, please visit the toolkit page.
