Pre-Disaster Mitigation

The objective of the program is to provide funding support to states, Indian tribal governments, territories, and communities for pre-disaster mitigation planning and projects primarily addressing natural hazards.

This program promotes implementation of activities designed to reduce injuries,
loss of life, and damage and destruction to property from natural hazards which is consistent with DHS QHSR Goal 5.1, ?Mitigate Hazards? and links to Presidential Policy Directive (PPD-8) - National Preparedness, Security, Resilience, Prevention, Mitigation, Response, Protection, and Recovery.

Agency - Department of Homeland Security

The Department of Homeland Security has three primary missions: Prevent terrorist attacks within the United States, reduce America's vulnerability to terrorism and minimize the damage from potential attacks and natural disasters.
