Clerks January Meeting - LTADD staff updated the Lincoln Trail Clerks on the upcoming regional Hazard Mitigation update and the new CDBG-CV funding recently announced by Governor Andy Beshear. 
The Lincoln Trail ADD in conjunction with local officials and stakeholders is preparing to do an update of the LTADD Regional Hazard Mitigation Plan.  In addition to providing a source for data on regional hazards and risk factors; this plan also serves as the focus for eligible mitigation-oriented projects looking for funding through FEMA or other federal programs. Previous projects in the Lincoln Trail region such as bridge replacements, warning systems, property acquisitions, storm shelters, generators and others have resulted from this plan.

To be eligible for FEMA funding streams in the event of a disaster, Counties and Cities must adopt a Hazard Mitigation Plan every 5 years. This plan update will serve as the plan for our communities to adopt to provide this capability. Our staff will be contacting Local Officials to schedule a meeting soon.
