Nodaway County Multi-jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan Approved

The State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) have approved the Nodaway County Multi-jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan Update.  The Plan will be in effect for five years and will expire September 12, 2023. 

The Northwest Missouri Regional Council of Governments conducted meetings with city and county officials, emergency management agencies, school leaders, stakeholders and other interested individuals to update the hazard mitigation plan and reduce the negative impacts of natural hazards in the future.  With an approved plan, Nodaway County’s participating jurisdictions will be eligible for state hazard mitigation grant funding opportunities. 

The Northwest Missouri Regional Council of Governments would like to thank everyone who participated in the Plan update process. If you have any questions regarding the Plan, please email them to Cassie Hasekamp, Community & Environmental Planner, at cassie@nwmorcog.org.
