The 406 Mitigation Program presents an opportunity for applicants to fortify their infrastructure against future catastrophic events. FEMA and most states provide hazard mitigation officers—at the request of the applicant—to aid in formulating 406 mitigation proposals. However, it is the applicant’s responsibility to identify and document the mitigation opportunities during Public Assistance project formulation.
Mitigation is valuable to society in many ways. It creates stronger, safer and more resilient communities and infrastructure. It also has the potential to save lives and lessens the economic impact on a community following a disaster. According to the Multi- Hazard Mitigation Council, every dollar spent on mitigation saves society an average of four dollars.
“Formulating mitigation projects is something we do for our clients and we have had a great deal of success with it,” said Ronald Cuccaro, president and CEO of Adjusters International. “Not only are the Public Assistance 404 and 406 mitigation programs highly effective tools in funding mitigation projects for PA applicants, they are an essential element in any applicant’s all- hazards approach, preparedness plan and recovery process.”
