Mitigation Measures: Sound Investments in Disaster Recovery

This edition of Disaster Recovery Today explores the value of mitigation programs eligible for FEMA funding. Mitigation grant funds are enormously valuable resources for local jurisdictions.

Understanding the foundation of hazard mitigation, strategizing your jurisdiction’s priorities, and assessing and documenting your risks will all help break the cycle of repetitive damage.
