Local Hazard Mitigation Plan

The Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 requires all local governments to develop and adopt a Hazard Mitigation Plan which will help to maintain and enhance the disaster resistance of each jurisdiction. Review Concord's plan and provides comments and feedback.

The City's Local Hazard Mitigation Plan was adopted by Council on July 26, 2005 and approved by FEMA in October 2005. Having a FEMA approved plan ensures we are eligible for mitigation grant funds such as HMGP (Hazard Mitigation Grant Program), FMA (Flood Mitigation Assistance), and Pre-Disaster Mitigation (PDM).
