Local Mitigation Strategy



The Palm Beach County Local Mitigation Strategy (LMS) Working Group and sub-committees are coordinated by the Palm Beach County Department of Public Safety's Division of Emergency Management. The LMS Working Group is comprised of county, municipal, private sector, and community partners, including the general public, that prepare and promote local strategies and projects to reduce long-term risks to life and property from natural, technological, and human caused disasters. The resulting pre and post disaster mitigation strategies and projects are supported by a variety of state and federal programs and funding sources, in accordance with the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000.

Mitigation projects carried on the LMS Prioritized Project List (PPL) may be eligible for funding under a variety of programs, such as the Pre Disaster Mitigation (PDM) Program, Public Assistance (PA), Flood Mitigation Assistance (FMA) Program, and Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP). The PPL is updated at least twice a year in anticipation of funding opportunities. 

LMS Working Group meetings serve as the primary mechanism and forum for exchanging information, planning implementation of updating the Palm Beach County Local Mitigation Strategy, and mobilizing the vast experience and resources of the community. Public attendance and comments are welcomed and encouraged.
