FEMA requires state, tribal, territorial and local governments to develop and adopt hazard mitigation plans as a condition for receiving certain types of non-emergency disaster assistance, including funding for mitigation projects. Jurisdictions must update their hazard mitigation plans and re-submit them for FEMA approval every five years to maintain eligibility.
The LaMoure County Multi-Hazard Mitigation plan was last approved in the year 2014.
LaMoure County has received funding to help update its Multi Hazard Mitigation Plan, and is being assisted by the consulting firm, KLJ. Due to two flooding disasters (DR4444 and DR4475) in 2019, the LaMoure County Plan update was delayed. As of March 2020, the LaMoure County Plan has been reviewed by the North Dakota team and approved. It is now in the review process at FEMA.
