Perkins, Chase, and Dundy Counties Planning Area
Project Purpose

Perkins, Chase, and Dundy Counties are working with JEO Consulting Group to update the 2015 Perkins, Chase, and Dundy Counties 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 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.

Members of the community, schools, NRD, fire departments, hospitals, and other jurisdictions within the three counties are invited to participate in this process by attending meetings and providing information for the plan.

This hazard mitigation plan updated is funded by a FEMA planning grant. The cost is shared 75% through federal funding and 25% through a local match. For this plan update, Perkins County, Chase County, and Dundy County are providing the 25% local match.
