Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan
A multi-jurisdictional hazard mitigation plan is a plan prepared jointly by more than one jurisdiction and may include any county, municipality, city, town, township, school district or other special district, council of governments or other regional organization, Indian tribe or Alaska Native village, or unincorporated areas. Multi-jurisdictional plans pose special considerations that single-jurisdiction plans may not need to address; but there are benefits as well, such as cost savings to prepare plans, shared staff and resources, and comprehensive approaches to mitigation hazards that cross jurisdictional boundaries.
