We create comprehensive natural hazard mitigation plans and specialize in converting them into Federal dollars for the local jurisdictions via grant writing efforts for local hazard mitigation planning projects.
Hazard Mitigation Plans (HMP) are designed to eliminate or reduce the longterm risk to life and property from natural and technological hazards. Metro Planning has developed more than 25 HMPs in Texas and Louisiana since 2003. Furthermore, we have converted those plans in to successful grant applications resulting in updated hazard mitigation plans and the buyout of nearly 200 flood-prone properties.
FEMA Mitigation Grant Writing Services Metro Planning has been successful in acquiring Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) funds for mitigation plan updates as well as flood buyouts. To date we have been directly responsible for securing over $10M in HMGP and PDM grant awards. Metro Planning also provides grant administration services.
Community Wildfire Protection Plans (CWPP)These plans are developed by a community in an area at risk from wildfire. The Community Wildfire Protection Planning process is the collaboration between communities and agencies interested in reducing the urban-wildland wildfire risk. Metro Planning is one of the only consulting firms working in the State of Texas that develops CWPPs.
