Schoharie County Multi Jurisdiction Hazard Mitigation Plan
The current plan was approved by FEMA on October 25, 2013. The Schoharie County Hazard Mitigation Committee used funding provided through the Pre Disaster Mitigation (PDM) program and the consulting services of Cannon Design, Buffalo, NY to update the original 2006 plan. All communities in the County have adopted the plan and will work on plan implementation over the next 5 years.
The Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 requires local governments to prepare hazard mitigation plans to document their hazard planning needs, goals and strategies. By developing a hazard mitigation plan, participating communities are deemed eligible for many types of Federal mitigation funding (e.g. floodplain property acquisition, home elevations). In order to maintain this eligibility, FEMA requires that communities update plans every 5 years to more accurately reflect changes in risk and vulnerability.
