Hazard Mitigation Grant Program Project - Dakota CountyDakota County
Dakota County, in conjunction with the Minnesota Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management Agency (HSEM) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has applied for a Hazard Mitigation Grant Program Project for the acquisition, demolition and return to open space a residential structure along the Cannon River, in Section 21 in Waterford Township, Dakota County, Minnesota.
Under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), EO 11988 and EO 11990, public notice is required of any federal actions that affect floodplains or wetlands. All necessary permits will be obtained prior to construction and completion of the project.
The objectives of the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program are to prevent future losses of lives and property, to implement state or local Hazard Mitigation plans, to enable mitigation measures to be implemented during immediate recovery from disaster, and to provide funding for identified and approved hazard mitigation projects.
Public participation is encouraged. Interested parties and/or citizens are invited to comment on the project either in writing to:
Amanda Ratliff, Regional Environmental Officer
FEMA Region V
536 South Clark Street, 6th Floor
