Hazard Mitigation Action Plan

Setting the Direction for Reducing Risk in Houston

The City of Houston Hazard Mitigation Action Plan (HMAP) helps identify the needs within the City of Houston to reduce our community's risk to natural hazards, such as hurricanes, drought, flooding, and severe storms. The HMAP is updated every five years by a team of subject matter experts within the City, with input from the community, and is approved by the Texas Division of Emergency Management.
