  • Allow the participating communities to qualify for pre- and post-disaster grants;
  • Speed recovery and redevelopment following disaster events;
  • Demonstrate a firm local commitment to hazard mitigation principles; and to
  • Comply with state and federal requirements for disaster recovery and mitigation funding.
