Hazard Mitigation Planning Committee
The New Hampton Hazard Mitigation Plan Update (the Plan) serves as a means to reduce future losses from natural or man-made hazard events before they occur. The Plan was developed by the New Hampton Hazard Mitigation Planning Update Committee with assistance from the Lakes Region Planning Commission, and contains statements of policy adopted by the Board of Selectmen in Chapter VI.

In order to be eligible to receive disaster related Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) grant funding to be used for hazard mitigation projects and actions that will ultimately reduce and mitigate future losses from natural or human hazard events, FEMA has required that all communities within the state of New Hampshire establish local hazard mitigation plans. In response to this requirement, the NH Department of Safety’s Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management (HSEM) and the nine regional planning commissions in the state entered into agreements to aid communities with plan development and update.
