Enhanced State Hazard Mitigation Plan (E-SHMP)
The E-SHMP is a mitigation plan for all Colorado state agencies that documents sustained, proven commitment to hazard mitigation. The plan acknowledges the coordinated efforts the state currently is taking to reduce losses, protect life and property, and create safer communities.
The plan must demonstrate that the state has developed a comprehensive and integrated mitigation program, effectively uses available mitigation funding, and is capable of managing the increased funding. A state with a FEMA approved E-SHMP at the time of a disaster declaration is eligible to receive increased funds under the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP), based on twenty percent of the total estimated eligible Stafford Act disaster assistance.
