planning area map

The Oglala Sioux Tribe is working with JEO Consulting Group to update their Hazard Mitigation Plan (HMP). A hazard mitigation plan is a community-guided document that identifies vulnerability to hazards and mitigation projects to reduce or eliminate this vulnerability. Having an approved and updated plan enables 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 within your community.

Community members, schools, fire departments, hospitals, and other jurisdictions within the community are invited to participate in this process by attending meetings and providing information for the plan. Additional information will be posted here as the planning process progresses.
