Postdisaster Toolkit: What Every State and Local Hazard Mitigator Needs to Know

Tue. 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., Interlocken C

This panel will present ideas on how best to seize the opportunity presented by a flood or other presidentially declared disaster to use existing funding, technical assistance, and other tools in such a way as to significantly reduce future losses. The panel will also identify gaps in policies or funding which impede hazard mitigation. Specific tools that have worked in the past to augment flood hazard mitigation will be discussed, and presenters and the audience will have an opportunity to suggest other concepts. These tools will be collected and used at presentations at both the NHMA Practitioners Meeting and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Flood Risk Management and Silver Jackets Workshop.
