Hazard mitigation planning is the process by which threats to localities are identified, the likelihood of impacts determined, goals to mitigate those threats are developed and appropriate strategies to eliminate or reduce impacts are determined, prioritized, and implemented. FEMA approval of the updated all-hazard mitigation plan will qualify participating jurisdictions for federal support for pre- and post-disaster hazard mitigation projects.

The collection and analysis of significant information is needed to assure the development of a useful updated plan that meets the needs of each participating jurisdiction and the requirements of the Disaster Mitigation Act, 2000. Essential data includes general background information from each locality, hazard and risk information, current codes, ordinances, regulations and procedures related to loss minimization as well as an assessment of each locality's technical and organizational abilities to perform hazard mitigation and/or loss prevention functions.

The Rappahannock-Rapidan Regional Commission, in coordination with with the Virginia Department of Emergency Management (VDEM), the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and its member jurisdictions, completed the Rappahannock-Rapidan Multi- Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan in 2005. A subsequent update to the plan was completed in 2012.
