The Federal Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 (DMA 2000) requires that states review LHMPs as part of their state hazard mitigation planning process. The purpose of the Local Hazard Mitigation Program is to gather hazard, vulnerability, and mitigation information and ensure that local and state hazard mitigation planning is coordinated. Incorporation of climate into LHMPs and integration of LHMPs with other local and regional plans is recommended when planning for the impacts of climate change.
