Background – Grant County, in cooperation with the Town of Converse, Town of Fairmount, Town of Fowlerton, City of Gas City, City of Jonesboro, City of Marion, Town of Matthews, Town of Swayzee, Town of Sweetser, Town of Upland, and Town of Van Buren have prepared an update to the 2009 Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan (MHMP) to address the risk and vulnerability of communities in the County which may be affected by known natural, technological, and political hazards.

The Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 (DMA 2000) requires communities to update their MHMP every 5 years in order to be eligible for any future mitigation funding through the State Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Emergency Management Agency. The intent of the MHMP is to plan for a disaster before it occurs in order to reduce the physical, social and economic impact of that disaster.
