Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan: Bethlehem

The primary purpose of a Natural Hazard Pre-Disaster Hazard Mitigation Plan is to identify natural hazards and risks, existing capabilities, and activities that can be undertaken by a community to prevent loss of life and reduce property damages associated with identified hazards. The Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 requires local communities to have a FEMA-approved mitigation plan in order to be eligible to receive Pre-Disaster Mitigation program grants and post-disaster Hazard Mitigation Grant Program funds.
