Webinar - Moving Mitigation Forward: The Past, Present, and Future of Hazard Mitigation Assistance

Description

Speaker: Eric Letvin, Deputy Assistant Administrator for Mitigation, Federal Emergency Management Agency

Webinar Description: This webinar will take a close look at FEMA’s Building Resilient Infrastructure and Communities (BRIC) program and the next steps for the effort. BRIC, which was recently funded as part of the Disaster Recovery Reform Act of 2018, allows FEMA to set aside six percent of the estimated disaster expenses for each major disaster in order to fund a new pre-disaster mitigation program (and replace the existing Pre-Disaster Mitigation (PDM) program). FEMA is evaluating potential changes in order to transition to BRIC and deliver a program that will (1) more meaningfully reduce risk; (2) reduce disaster costs, and (3) increase resilience across the full spectrum of hazards for the agency’s partners which includes states, local communities, tribes, and territories.
