A community plan that identifies actions to be done now to help alleviate disaster conditions in the future. Hazards Mitigation Plan will help your town or city to break the cycle of repeated damages, improve a community's competitiveness for federal grant programs, especially the post-disaster Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) as well as the pre-disaster Flood Mitigation Assistance (FMA), and most importantly achieve other community goals as well, such as increasing communication and disaster awareness.
