Tazewell & Woodford Counties Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan

2023 Update

Tri-County Regional Planning Commission (TCRPC) is beginning the process to update the Tri-County Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan (HMP) to better protect the people and property of the Tri-County Region from the effects of natural and man-made hazard events. TCRPC has contracted with American Environmental Corporation (AEC) and WSP Environment & Infrastructure (WSP) to facilitate the planning process and prepare the plan document. AEC will be responsible for coordination with Tazewell and Woodford Counties and their incorporated jurisdictions.

The Tazewell and Woodford Counties HMP will be prepared pursuant to the requirements of the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 (Public Law 106-390) and the implementing regulations set forth by the Interim Final Rule published in the Federal Register on February 26, 2002, (44 CFR §201.6) and finalized on October 31, 2007. These regulations establish the requirements that hazard mitigation plans must meet in order for Tazewell and Woodford Counties and their incorporated jurisdictions to be eligible for certain federal disaster assistance and hazard mitigation funding under the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Act (Public Law 93-288). Because Tazewell and Woodford Counties are subject to many kinds of hazards, access to these federal programs is vital.
