Hazard Mitigation Plans
Plans by Year
The State of New Jersey's Hazard Mitigation Plan (HMP) captures historic disaster experiences, and reflects the natural and human-caused hazards New Jersey faces, based on current science and research. The State HMP outlines a strategy to reduce risks from hazards, and serves as the basis for prioritizing future project funding.
All States are required to have a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)-approved hazard mitigation plan to be eligible for disaster recovery assistance and mitigation funding. The State HMP fulfills this requirement and provides direction and guidance on launching hazard mitigation projects. The State HMP must be reviewed, updated and submitted to FEMA for approval at least once every 3 years in order to maintain eligibility for FEMA grant programs.
