Counties are required to make such plans as a result of the federal Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 (DMA2K). This Act put a national priority on hazard mitigation by requiring mitigation plans in order to be eligible for disaster mitigation grant programs from FEMA. Lincoln County is developing a multi-jurisdictional plan to establish eligibility for both the county. This in no way obligates or commits any local jurisdiction.
This plan is intended to reduce or eliminate long-term risk to people and property from natural disasters. Hazards covered in the plan include flooding, tornadoes, temperature extremes, wildfire, and others. The plan maintains County eligibility for federal mitigation grants.
