FEMA Announces Mitigation Finalists

1 decade 2 months 3 weeks ago May 04, 2007 May 4, 2007 Friday, May 04 2007 Friday, May 04, 2007 7:47:10 PM CDT in News

The applications, after full approval, will be eligible to receive 75% federal funding from the PDM Program. The PDM Program funds mitigation plans, such as elevating homes in flood-prone areas or making foundations earthquake resistant, that work to lessen the effects of disasters.

In the press release, Paulison said that the PDM program "encourages local leaders across the nation to look ahead and plan against what could be catastrophic events. These mitigation activities in Missouri show that the state and local communities are working together with FEMA and other partners to make mitigation happen. Mitigation is the cornerstone of emergency preparedness and management. Funding these plans and projects reduces risks to lives and property. By making our communities safer in the first place, we make great strides toward reducing the need for federal post-disaster recovery funds."

Missouri mitigation activities include:

The Director of FEMA's Mitigation Division, David Maurstad, said that they chose the best projects based on criteria such as available funds and technical feasibility. FEMA received 470 applications for the 2007 competition. A team of experts from federal, state, territorial, local and tribal governments assessed the applications.
