Potential Funding Sources for Local Mitigation Strategy (LMS)

Local mitigation plans identify the natural hazards that may affect a single or multiple local jurisdictions, such as a town, city, or county. Plans assess risks and vulnerabilities, identify actions to reduce losses from those hazards identified, and establish a coordinated process to implement the plan using a wide range of public and private investments. 

FEMA requires local governments to develop and adopt such hazard mitigation plans as a condition for receiving certain types of non-emergency disaster assistance, including funding for mitigation projects. Jurisdictions must update their hazard mitigation plans and re-submit them for FEMA approval every five years to maintain eligibility.
