Benzie County Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan!!
Networks Northwest Community Development staff planners are assisting Benzie County with the update of the County's Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan. Hazard mitigation planning reduces loss of life and property by minimizing the impact of natural disasters. Regularly updated and FEMA-approved hazard mitigation plans allow a community to remain eligible for various federally-funded hazard mitigation grant opportunities for five years.
