State Hazard Mitigation Plans and Climate Change: Rating the States

November 2013

In accordance with federal law, all states must have an approved statewide hazard mitigation plan (SHMP) in order to receive federal disaster mitigation funding from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). The 50-state survey considers to what extent and in what manner climate change related issues are incorporated into existing plans, with all states categorized and ranked. The SHMPs analyzed were all approved by FEMA during the period 2010 to 2012, with the exceptions of Indiana (the latest version available was from 2008), New Hampshire and Vermont (the 2013 draft versions were used).
