Mitigation

The Mitigation Section maintains the State Hazard Mitigation Plan, reviews local mitigation plans, and provides hazard mitigation training for local officials. In the aftermath of major disasters, TDEM Mitigation Section staff members deploy to the Joint Field Office to set up disaster recovery operations and coordinate planning for post-disaster mitigation programs with their federal counterparts and with local officials.

TDEM’s Mitigation staff administers The Pre-Disaster Mitigation grant program, and a large number of post-disaster Hazard Mitigation Grant Programs. These grant programs provide Federal grant funding for cities, counties, and other governmental entities to carry out local and regional hazard mitigation programs.
