Mitigation Planning and Public Services

Mitigation Planning and Public Services (MIT-PPS) funds help local governments and nonprofits in impacted areas provide much-needed services after disasters and to better prepare their communities for future disasters.

Program Overview

After consultations with state partner agencies and local stakeholders, HCD identified a need for public education and awareness and planning projects around disaster recovery and disaster mitigation. Funding received for the 2017 and 2018 Community Development Block Grant Mitigation (CDBG-MIT) grants facilitated the Mitigation Planning and Public Services (MIT-PPS) Program to assist local jurisdictions with mitigation-related planning and public services needs to support risk reduction from wildfire, flooding, and earthquake hazards. Eligible jurisdictions and nonprofit entities may use MIT-PPS funds to create projects that address risks to, or across, community lifelines that support human health and safety and provide mitigation for individual and community-based systems.
