The Planning Process An effective hazard mitigation planning process is critical to making your community more disaster resistant. The FEMA programs can serve as the building blocks for this process by providing technical and financial planning assistance to communities. Through the planning process, you can identify the hazards that threaten your community, assess your vulnerability, and build consensus on approaches to reduce future losses. This process leads to the identification of cost-effective, environmentally sound mitigation measures. In fact, the planning process is so critical to the implementation of effective mitigation measures that many of the FEMA programs that are intended to fund mitigation measures, require a mitigation plan as a condition of funding.
