HGA professionals work closely with the government and homeowners to reduce or eliminate long term risk to people and property from natural disasters. Hazard Mitigation planning is a process used by state and local governments to identify risks and vulnerabilities associated with natural disasters and develop mitigation strategies to prevent the same damage from occurring in the future.

This includes all aspect of FEMA HMA programs and projects ranging from reconstructions, acquisitions, and elevations to critical infrastructure facilities and drainage projects. Our program managers will develop and adapt hazard identification strategies based on our understanding of all federal and state regulations.
