Project Purpose

The Lower Platte North Natural Resources District (LPNNRD) is updating their Hazard Mitigation Plan (HMP) with the assistance of JEO Consulting Group. An HMP is a community-guided document that determines vulnerabilities to natural and man-made hazards, then identifies mitigation projects to reduce or eliminate those vulnerabilities. An approved HMP is a requirement of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for jurisdictions to become eligible for Hazard Mitigation Assistance grants. An HMP will enable your community to be stronger and more resilient by:

  1. Reducing your community's risk and impacts from disasters;
  2. Gaining eligibility for pre- and post-disaster mitigation grants; and
  3. Building partnerships with stakeholders within your community and region.

 

HMPs must be updated and approved every five years. The LPNNRD last updated their HMP in 2015. Throughout the planning process, members of the community, (including school districts, fire departments, drainage districts, local health departments, and others,) are invited to participate by attending public meetings and providing information for the plan.

This plan update is funded by a FEMA planning grant which offers 75% federal funding with a 25% local match. The Nemaha NRD is providing the 25% local match.

A copy of the approved 2020 Lower Platte North NRD Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan Update can be downloaded below. Each participating jurisdiction must adopt the plan by resolution, which is the final step to be eligible for project grant funding. Once the resolution is passed and signed, please send a copy to Anthony Kohel at akohel@jeo.com so it can be filed with NEMA and FEMA.
