Collier County Multi-jurisdictional LMS (2020)

"The local mitigation plan is the representation of the jurisdiction’s commitment to reduce risks from natural hazards, serving as a guide for decision makers as they commit resources to reducing the effects of natural hazards. Local plans will also serve as the basis for the State to provide technical assistance and to prioritize project funding.” -44 CFR 201.6
The Collier County Local Mitigation Strategy (LMS) plan is a vital document to assist our community in identifying, evaluating and planning for natural hazards. This living document analyzes a wide range of community plans, capabilities, stakeholders and community characteristics to develop effective mitigation initiatives for your community. Furthermore, the Robert T. Stafford Act requires communities to have an approved LMS plan before they are eligible for federal mitigation grants. These grants include: The Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP), Pre-Disaster Mitigation Program (PDM) and Flood Mitigation Assistance Program (FEMA). Your county LMS plan may also be a vital piece to your Community Rating System (CRS) class.
This LMS is reviewed and approved by the State of Florida & FEMA every five years.

Below is the DRAFT 2020 Collier County Local  Mitigation Strategy and the FEMA Compliance Criteria, a document which is like a table of contents in which the State of Florida and FEMA can find required items in the plan.
