Herkimer County, along with its communities, is in the process of updating the Hazard Mitigation Plan (HMP). This plan is required by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in order to be eligible for federal grant funding for public and private mitigation projects.

The HMP will provide a “blueprint” by which local governments can make coordinated, cost-effective efforts towards reducing losses from natural hazards (flooding, severe storms, severe winter storms,  extreme temperatures, etc.). More information about this planning process and additional mitigation resources may be found at the  Herkimer County HMP website at  https://www.herkimercountynyhmp.com/

The following survey is designed to help identify general needs for mitigation within the County from your perspective and identify specific projects that may be included in the mitigation plan.

Thank you in advance for your participation.
