FEMA’s Mitigation program is designed to assist communities with funding, to implement natural hazard mitigation programs pre-disaster to reduce the overall risk to their population and infrastructure from future disasters. Through the program FEMA awards both planning and project grants and also provides opportunities to raise public awareness of the need to plan and prepare before disaster strikes, to reduce reliance on federal funding following disasters.
Tidal Basin works with states and individual jurisdictions to create Hazard Mitigation Plans which identify the potential hazards that present risks to life and property. We then recommend specific mitigation actions that can reduce the impact of a disaster event.
The hazard mitigation plan outlines the organization’s strategies and priorities for mitigating against the various potential natural hazards or man-made threats. The plan not only guides emergency managers, but also assists in the grant funding process.
How Tidal Basin Can Assist
- Draft custom plans tailored to your organizations needs
- Update and enhance existing plans

I've been dealing with Tidal Basin for over two years in my positions as the Emergency Manager for Miami Beach. During that time, Tidal Basin has never disappointed me and has always exceeded my expectations. They are always available for consult, very easy to communicate with and are responsive to our requests. They are in tune with the City's fiscal responsibilities and therefore have stayed within the original budget. Just yesterday, we had an ad-hoc meeting with the CEO, Daniel Craig and his staff regarding COVID-19 reimbursement. They team not only reinforced our thoughts but because they stayed up to date on all Federal funding programs, they added pertinent information that we were not aware of.
...The Tidal Basin team did an excellent job planning and executing the Evacuation Workshop in a way that was engaging and informative. Our staff was energized and still talking about how great the workshop was days later. We look forward to our next opportunity to work with the Tidal Basin Healthcare team.
Severe storms dumped massive amounts of rain in the Southern Tier of New York State in the summer of 2006, resulting in widespread flooding.
When Hurricane Katrina struck, bringing with it widespread flooding and damage, the City of Slidell took the brunt of the storm. Located just 30 miles north of New Orleans, the two cities were both hit full-force by the destructive power of the hurricane. Unfortunately for Slidell, the nation first focused on the recovery of New Orleans. The City of Slidell didn't begin its recovery operations under Adjusters International had been hired, bringing the expertise required to turn the recovery process around.
