Mitigation Expertise to Facilitate the Recovery of Resilient Communities
GP Strategies mitigation staff members stand ready to provide emergency management assistance and expertise to municipalities and eligible entities in project identification, sub-application development, programmatic/policy guidance, planning, grants management, monitoring, and closeout of activities.
Local hazard mitigation (HM) initiatives are important. Because they are put in place before a disaster, they reduce vulnerability so that communities can recover more quickly and be better protected from the impacts of a disaster when one occurs. GP Strategies strategically implements mitigation initiatives that break the cycle of damage, reconstruction, and repeat damage.
Recognizing that stronger, more resilient communities reduce the impacts of disasters, resulting in recoveries that are less costly, the Federal Government invests in HM initiatives by providing grants to assist communities to implement HM projects, both pre- and post-disaster.
