All Hazard Mitigation Plan

The Sussex County Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan, first adopted in 2005, is part of the County’s all-hazards plan that serves as a comprehensive, long-term planning tool used to identify various strategies. The overall goal of the effort is to reduce or eliminate the loss of human life and damage to property as a result of hazards, both natural and man-made. The Disaster Mitigation Act, passed in 2000, requires states and local governments to develop and approve hazard mitigation plans in order to be eligible for post-disaster hazard mitigation funding.
