State of New Jersey 2014 State Hazard Mitigation Plan
The State of New Jersey's Hazard Mitigation Plan (HMP) captures historic disaster experiences, and reflects the
natural and human-caused hazards New Jersey faces, based on current science and research. The State HMP outlines a
strategy to reduce risks from hazards, and serves as the basis for prioritizing future project funding.
All States are required to have a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)-approved hazard mitigation plan to be
eligible for disaster recovery assistance and mitigation funding. The State HMP fulfills this requirement and provides
direction and guidance on launching hazard mitigation projects. The State HMP must be reviewed, updated and submitted
to FEMA for approval at least once every 3 years in order to maintain eligibility for FEMA grant programs.
