FEMA's National Mitigation Planning Program's mission is to lead and support local, state, and tribal communities to effectively engage in risk-based mitigation planning resulting in sustainable actions that reduce risks to life and property from hazards. This mission directly cascades from FEMA’s mission—to help people, before, during, and after disasters. The primary focus is to reduce risk through mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery. FEMA’s support of local planning helps to build local capacity for the advancement of hazard mitigation.
