2019 Tribal Hazard Mitigation Plans (THMP)

The THMP identifies all natural hazards that affect the community, including earthquake, flood/erosion, severe weather, and wildland/tundra fire hazards, etc. The plan identifies the people and facilities potentially at risk and ways to mitigate damage from future hazard impacts. The public participation and planning process is documented as part of this project.

Why Do We Need A Hazard Mitigation Plan?

A FEMA approved and community adopted THMP

enables your Tribal council’s eligibility to apply for funding through state and federal mitigation grant programs.

BBNA Tribal Transportation Safety Program

“A Transportation Safety Plan is a collaborative and comprehensive document that identifies transportation safety issues and strategies to address them. Effective Transportation Safety Plans lead to projects that make the transportation system safer.” ~U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Highway Administration

The purpose of the Tribal Transportation Safety Plans is to use existing data to identify transportation safety issues, prioritize activities to address these issues, and identify potential funding sources to implement the activities. Communities that have a safety plan are:

Participating Tribes: Clarks Point; Curyung; Egegik; Ekuk; Ekwok; Levelock; New Stuyahok; Nondalton; Pilot Point; Portage Creek; Port Heiden; Togiak; and Twin Hills
