The Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 (DMA 2000) requires that local governments, as a condition of receiving federal disaster mitigation funds, have a mitigation plan that describes the process for identifying hazards, risks and vulnerabilities, identifies and prioritizes mitigation actions, encourages the development of local mitigation and provide technical support for those efforts. The purpose of this plan is to fulfill the Federal requirements for the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000. The plan identifies hazards; establishes community goals and objectives and mitigation activities that are appropriate for the Roanoke Valley-Alleghany region.
