FEMA Announces the Release of the Tribal Mitigation Plan Review Guide

FEMA recently released the Tribal Mitigation Plan Review Guide (Guide). Effective next December, the Guide will be FEMA's official policy on tribal mitigation planning requirements and will supersede the Tribal Multi-Hazard Mitigation Planning Guidance issued in 2010. The underlying regulatory requirements for tribal mitigation planning in 44 CFR Part 201 have not changed.

 

Tribal mitigation plans are community-driven, living documents that tribal governments use to strengthen and protect their land and people from the negative impact of natural events like floods and wildfires. They are a pre-requisite for certain kinds of non-emergency disaster assistance.

 

FEMA engaged tribal governments throughout the development of the Guide, including tribal consultations in 2016 and 2017. These consultations yielded over 350 comments from federally-recognized tribes and other interested parties. The result of the update is a more streamlined document that provides greater clarity regarding FEMA mitigation planning requirements. This update will facilitate tribal governments' successful development and adoption of mitigation plans.

 

FEMA will hold a national webinar on the updated policy on January 23, 2018 at 4:00 PM Eastern Standard Time (EST) to provide more information to tribal governments about the updated policy. Additional outreach will be completed through the FEMA Regions.

 

The 2010 Tribal Multi-Hazard Mitigation Planning Guidance is still in effect until December 2018. As a reference, the 2018 Tribal Guide is available in the FEMA library. For more information on the Guide or the outreach webinar, please contact your Regional Tribal Liaison or the Regional Mitigation Planning Lead in your Region.
