CDBG-MIT Action Plan Requirements

Synopsis

Community Development Block Grant Mitigation (CDBG-MIT) action plans must include a risk-based Mitigation Needs Assessment that identifies and analyzes all significant current and future disaster risks which provides a substantive basis for the activities proposed. The mitigation needs assessment requires grantees to collaborate with a variety of stakeholders that currently administer the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) funds. This collaboration is essential as it helps ensure the goals of CDBG-MIT funding. Grantees are required to use the most recent risk assessment from their state, local, or Indian tribal governments Hazard Mitigation Plans (HMP). The HMP is used as a starting place for outlining current risks within the HUD-identified "most impacted and distressed" areas.

These "most impacted and distressed" areas are outlined in Table 1- Allocations for Mitigation Activities in the FR-6109-N-02, FR-6109-N-03, and FR-6109-N-04 notices.
