2023 Hazard Mitigation Plan

The South Central Regional Council of Governments (SCRCOG) completed an update to the Multi-Jurisdiction Hazard Mitigation Plan for 15 municipalities in South Central Connecticut. The purpose of the plan is to provide the region with a comprehensive examination of all natural hazards affecting the area and help reduce the South Central Region’s vulnerability to natural hazards and ease the burden of keeping communities safe and resilient. Through the Plan, the participating municipalities are eligible for FEMA mitigation program funding before and after potential natural disasters. The plan is required to be updated every five years. It has received FEMA approval and has been officially adopted as of April 3, 2023.
