The CVCOG Regional Services department is also responsible for the Hazard Mitigation planning services. In 2002 FEMA declared that it would no longer aid communities with Hazard Mitigation projects unless those communities had a FEMA approved Hazard Mitigation Action Plan, to this end, the Regional Services Department acquired a grant to hire H2O Consultants out of Austin to aid in the completion of this plan.
The final hazard mitigation action plan, "Towards a Disaster Resistant Concho Valley" has been approved by both the State of Texas and FEMA. The plan may now be used to implement projects that will aid in making the Concho Valley region a safer place to live.
