Mitigation & Recovery Services Section staff provide technical assistance to local jurisdictions in developing or updating mitigation plans. One Guide used when advising local jurisdictions is the Local Mitigation Plan Review Guide shown below. The second document below, the Local Mitigation Plan Review Tool, is a Microsoft Word version of Appendix A of the Guide. The “regulation checklist” within the Tool is the official evaluation used by FEMA when reviewing local mitigation plans. Typically local governments utilize this checklist while developing or updating their mitigation plan, and then do a full self-evaluation using the Tool prior to submitting a local mitigation plan through OEM to FEMA for pre-adoption review.
