This 2-day workshop discusses the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 which amends the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act by, among other things, adding a new section, 322—Mitigation Planning. Section 322 requires local governments to prepare and adopt jurisdiction-wide hazard mitigation plans as a condition of receiving Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) funds to “brick and mortar” mitigation projects. The Mitigation Planning Workshop for Local Governments course assists representatives of local communities or multi-jurisdictional planning areas to develop a mitigation plan that meets community needs as well as the Section 322 local government planning requirements as described in 44 CFR Section 201.6. This workshop explains each of the requirements, demonstrates how FEMA’s new Mitigation Planning How-to-Guides can be used to address each requirement, and provides opportunities to begin the planning process in group activities with representatives of the same community or planning area. This workshop is one of the required courses for the FEMA Advanced Professional Series.
This workshop is designed for local government officials, State officials, and others who are involved in the development of a local mitigation plan. Please feel free to pass this Course Announcement on to other appropriate attendees.
