Hazard Mitigation Action Plan
Setting the Direction for Reducing Risk in Houston
The City of Houston Hazard Mitigation Action Plan (HMAP) helps identify the needs within the City of Houston to reduce our community’s risk to natural hazards, such as hurricanes, drought, flooding, and severe storms. The HMAP is updated every five years by a team of subject matter experts within the City, with input from the community, and is approved by the Texas Division of Emergency Management.
2018 Hazard Mitigation Action Plan Amendment
The City of Houston updated the Hazard Mitigation Plan in early 2018 using information previous to the impacts from Hurricane Harvey. As part of an ongoing commitment to ensuring that the best information is used to help prioritize projects for reducing Houston’s risk, an additional amendment to the 2018 plan will be submitted once this information has become available, and additional strategies for risk reduction are identified.
In addition to the Reslient Houston event held in January, Public meetings will be held to help Houstonians be part of the process. Houston residents are encouraged to review the current plan and use the form below to submit any comments about the plan. You may also contact us with specific questions or concerns about the plan.
