Hood County Hazard Mitigation Action Plan

What is the Hazard Mitigation Plan?

The Hazard Mitigation Plan (HMP) – sometimes referred to as a Hazard Mitigation Action Plan (HMAP) – is a document which helps the county reduce the impact of various threats faced by the County. The plan update process happens once every five years and includes partners in our planning jurisdictions. Having a current Hazard Mitigation Plan makes us eligible for various grant funds from the Federal Government, and helps us be more aware of threats faced by our communities.

2021 Hazard Mitigation Plan 

The current Hood County Hazard Mitigation Plan was officially adopted by Hood County in 2000.  This current plan will not expire until 2025.  The cities of Granbury, Cresson, Lipan and Tolar have adopted the Hood County Hazard Mitigation Plan as their own.  The Hood County Hazard Mitigation Plan is kept current by taking a collaborative approach involving several planning meetings with local jurisdictions and the public.
