Hazard Mitigation Plan
We’re planning for a resilient future.
In 2021, East Baton Rouge Parish began updating the EBRP Hazard Mitigation Plan. The Hazard Mitigation Plan details the risks faced by the Parish, both man made and naturally occurring, and outlines risk reduction strategies that can help lessen the impact of future disasters.
The Hazard Mitigation Plan update will identify mitigation measures that East Baton Rouge Parish and its stakeholders can develop that may reduce the impact or severity of future events. The Hazard Mitigation Plan is a requirement to access disaster assistance programs through the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and also informs floodplain management planning under the Community Rating System (CRS) to improve CRS score and increase flood insurance discounts under the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).
