A Hazard Mitigation Plan is a comprehensive document created to develop and implement practical, manageable mitigation strategies that help to reduce a community’s risk to natural hazards.

Jefferson Parish has updated its plan through a collaborative effort of officials from Jefferson Parish, the cities of Gretna, Harahan, Kenner, Westwego, and the towns of Grand Isle and Jean Lafitte. This update occurs every five years.

An approved plan allows the Parish and participating municipalities to apply for federal funds for projects prioritized in the plan. Click here to view or download the Jefferson Parish 2015 Multijurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan Update and Annual Progress Report.
