The plan is required to be updated every five years.

2018 Hazard Mitigation Plan
The current Multi-Jurisdiction Hazard Mitigation Plan (HMP) received FEMA Approval in May 2018 and included fourteen SCRCOG municipalities. The HMP planning process adhered to FEMA standards and requirements for local hazard mitigation plans. The HMP identifies hazard risks and mitigation actions to reduce or eliminate those risks. Through the Plan, the participating municipalities are eligible for FEMA mitigation program funding before and after potential natural disasters. The participating municipalities have been diligently working to advance or further evaluate their respective mitigations actions. SCRCOG has been advancing the regional mitigation actions by obtaining grant funding to advance resiliency efforts.
