MAPA assists Mills County and Pottawattamie County with pre-disaster and hazard mitigation planning under the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP). Such planning requires the active participation of local planning committees, in-depth reviews of past disasters and/or near-disasters and a series of goals and objectives to make regional jurisdictions as disaster-ready as possible. MAPA has prepared plans for each community in Mills and Pottawattamie Counties and for the counties themselves.
