Department of Local Affairs (DOLA) : Natural Hazards Mitigation Plan 2008 for the State of Colorado
|Name||Department of Local Affairs (DOLA) : Natural Hazards Mitigation Plan 2008 for the State of Colorado|
|Project Purpose||State and local governments must continue to improve their ability to respond to natural hazards. To that end, it is imperative that different levels of government be able to cooperate with one another in developing approaches and responses that mitigate hazards. In Colorado, many state departments are responsible for mitigating the effects of hazards.
Many federal agencies provide funding for mitigation projects. The USDA Forest Service (USFS) and USDI (BLM), through the National Fire Plan and other sources, provide funding for fire mitigation. The USDA Farm Services Agency provides assistance after disas- ter declarations. The Natural Resources Conservation Service, through the Emergency Watershed Protection Program provide funds for recovery. The Small Business Administration (SBA) provides grants and loans after disaster and drought declarations. Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) within the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) provides financial and technical assistance to state and local governments following presidential disaster and emergency declarations. Local governments are the driving force in mitigation planning and project implementation because the majority of natural hazard mitigation occurs at the local government level.
This project operates in Colorado.
