2019 Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan
In 2019, the City of Providence updated its Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan. Hazard mitigation planning is key to identifying actions that can help communities improve their resilience to future disasters and reduce their risks of impacts. Our Hazard Mitigation Plan details the risks to our city—both man-made and naturally occurring—and mitigation strategies that can help lessen the impact of future disasters. Effective mitigation requires an understanding of local risks, addressing the hard choices, and investing in long-term community well-being. The City of Providence updates its Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan every five years in order to remain eligible for pre-disaster grants and post-disaster funding.
