Requesting Public Input for Hazard Mitigation Plan Updates – CLOSED

The Western Upper Peninsula Planning and Development Region (WUPPDR) has been recently contracted by Keweenaw Bay Indian Community (KBIC) and the western six counties to update and draft the five year hazard mitigation plans. In addition to guiding mitigation for KBIC and the counties, the plan will ensure their communities are eligible for certain grants from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)
