Hazard Mitigation Planning
WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU!

The 2021 Schenectady County Hazard Mitigation Plan update is currently underway and is inclusive of the County and all eight municipalities. The Hazard Mitigation Plan (HMP) identifies and evaluates risks and vulnerabilities associated with natural hazards and resulting disasters. The HMP leads to the development of long-term strategies (policies and actions) for risk reduction and ensures eligibility for federal mitigation funding, a key asset in the implementation of mitigation actions that reduce risk and impacts of hazards.
There are two online surveys, one targeted for the general public and one for local organizations and community groups:
