​2013 California Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan

Picture of SHMP CoverThe 2013 California Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan (SHMP) represents the state’s primary hazard mitigation guidance document. The SHMP reflects the state’s commitment to reduce or eliminate potential risks and impacts of natural and human-caused disasters to keep California’s families, homes and communities better prepared and more disaster resilient.

California is required under the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 to review and revise its SHMP and resubmit it for FEMA approval at least every five years (5) pursuant to 44 Code of Federal Regulations §201.4 and §201.5 to ensure the continued eligibility of Stafford Act funding.

FEMA's approval of the 2013 SHMP as an enhanced plan enabled California to receive an additional $156 million in Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) funding in 2017 alone.  Per 44 Code of Federal Regulations §201.5(a), a state with a FEMA-approved Enhanced SHMP at the time of a disaster declaration is eligible to receive increased funds under HMGP, based on 20% of the total estimated eligible Stafford Act disaster assistance (vs. 15% for a Standard SHMP). CA has had an Enhanced SHMP for it’s FEMA-approved 2007, 2010, and 2013 SHMPs, and is striving to retain the state’s Enhanced status with the 2018 CA SHMP update.
