Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan Updates

Networks Northwest has been awarded two FY 2019 Pre-Disaster Mitigation Grants from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). The first award is for the update of one tribal plan (for the Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Chippewa Indians) and seven county plans (for Antrim, Benzie, Kalkaska, Leelanau, Manistee, Missaukee, and Wexford counties). The second award is for the creation of a new tribal plan for the Little River Band of Ottawa Indians.

During the planning project period (2021-2023), Networks Northwest will work in partnership with each agency to prepare a total of nine natural hazard mitigation plans.  

Additionally, a plan update for Grand Traverse County will be completed separately from these awards.





Networks Northwest always proves to be a valued resource for our local government planning efforts. No organization does a better job of convening partners, promoting collaboration, and reporting on the data than does Networks Northwest
