Cedar County Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan

Cedar County and the participating cities, and public school districts prepared this multi-jurisdictional hazard mitigation plan update to guide hazard mitigation planning
to better protect the people and property of the planning area from the effects of hazard events. 


This plan demonstrates the jurisdiction’s commitments to reducing risks from hazards and serves as a tool to help decision makers direct mitigation activities and resources.  This plan was also developed to make Cedar County and the participating jurisdictions eligible for certain federal grant programs; specifically, the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Hazard Mitigation Assistance (HMA) grants such as the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program, Pre-Disaster Mitigation Program, and Flood Mitigation Assistance Program.
