After disaster strikes, in order for local and state government and certain non-profits to be eligible for federal recovery and mitigation assistance, New York State must have an existing, FEMA-approved State Mitigation Plan.

Local governments also use the State Mitigation Plan as a reference document as they develop their own local mitigation plans, which allows access to federal mitigation project funding. The links below will take you to the various sections of New York's approved 2008 State Mitigation Plan.
