Perkins, Chase, and Dundy Counties worked with JEO Consulting Group to create the 2020 Perkins, Chase, and Dundy Counties Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan. A hazard mitigation plan is a community-guided document that identifies vulnerability to hazards and mitigation projects to reduce or eliminate this vulnerability. Hazard mitigation plans are a requirement of the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000, administered by the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Having an approved and updated plan enables communities to be stronger and more resilient by:
1. Reducing a community's risk and impacts from disasters,
2. Gaining eligibility for pre- and post-disaster mitigation grants, and
3. Building partnerships within a community.
This hazard mitigation plan updated was funded by a FEMA planning grant. The cost was shared 75% through federal funding and 25% through a local match. For this plan update, Perkins County, Chase County, and Dundy County provided the 25% local match.
