Public Comment Form
The plan will be available for public comment until May 31st, 2012. All comments received by this date will be reviewed and considered.
The primary intent of this project is to identify and document potential hazards, risks, vulnerabilities and projects that are suitable for future federal funding as it becomes available. The projects will be focused on reducing the risk of loss of life, injury or property damage due to natural hazards; generally referred to as hazard mitigation. This process includes input from the local hazard mitigation team in Bexar, Wilson, Karnes and Goliad Counties.
Each year, millions of federal hazard mitigation grants dollars are made available to eligible applicants via programs such as the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) and the Pre-Disaster Mitigation Program (PDM). With an approved hazard mitigation plan, the County and the municipalities will be eligible for these competitive grant funds.
