Marble Falls began working with grant consultant Rojas Planning to develop a plan to offer practical approaches and examples for how the communities can engage in effective planning to reduce long-term risk from natural hazards and disasters.
Under the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) requires communities to develop a mitigation plan to minimize or eliminate the long-term risk to human life and property from known hazards. FEMA defines mitigation as sustained actions to reduce or eliminate long-term risk to people and property from hazards and their effects. Hazards that may pose a threat and potentially result in disaster include but are not limited to drought, flood, hurricane, tornado, and wildfire.
Communities with a FEMA-approved plan are eligible for certain grant funding under the Hazard Mitigation Assistance (HMA) program to fund critical projects such as buyouts and structural elevation of repetitive flood loss structures, drainage projects, and hardening necessary facilities to minimize future damage from natural disasters that affect the Marble Falls planning area.
