FEMA to Update State and Local Mitigation Planning Guides

Jul 30, 2020 | What's New

FEMA is updating both the State and Local Hazard Mitigation Plan Review Guides this year. Plan Review Guides are the FEMA’s official interpretation of Title 44 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Section 201.4-7, which outlines requirements for State and Local hazard mitigation plans. Both policies are available to read on FEMA’s website:

FEMA has an online presentation providing a high-level overview of State and Local Hazard Mitigation Planning guidance, and shares information on how you can provide feedback on existing policies. You can access the video on FEMA’s YouTube channel.

ASPFM encourages members to provide ideas and feedback on either guidance. Please send them to through August 14, 2020. Afterwards, FEMA will provide a summary of the feedback received.

Additional information on hazard mitigation planning is available on FEMA’s website.
