About the Mitigation Action Tracker

The Mitigation Actions Tracker prototype is a web-based tool for Risk MAP providers and mitigation planners to document and report local mitigation actions influenced by Risk MAP (or non-Risk MAP) processes. Data captured will support measuring Risk MAP Action Metric performance while also providing stakeholders valuable mitigation information that can be leveraged by future planning or other risk reduction efforts.

This site is a functional prototype and may contain bugs. Please direct any question or comments to Juliette Hayes, FEMA Regional Planner or Marc Pearson, STARR Project Manager.

Action Measures

When is the progress on each measure assessed? When should mitigation actions be identified and documented?

Action Measure 1 includes a one-year delay or grace period before targets apply. Since Discovery is intended to be funded separately from Risk MAP mapping projects, this means that from the time that a Discovery project is funded (officially), the Region has one year to document newly identified or enhanced already-planned mitigation strategies.

Action Measure 2 is different, in that it includes a two-year delay before the target is expected to be achieved. This grace period begins when a Risk MAP project is officially, so the region has two years to work with communities and document the advancement of an identified strategy.

Identification and documentation can take place at any time. Users should not wait for resilience meetings, which can be years away from project initiation.

What is Action Measure 1? What is Action Measure 2?

Action Measure 1 is defined as the percentage of population where Risk MAP helped identify new strategies or improved current planned mitigation actions, in direct collaboration with communities. Through collaboration between Risk MAP project teams and communities, previously identified actions (from Hazard Mitigation Plans) are improved on or new strategies are developed "on the spot."

Action Measure 2 is defined as the percentage of population that has advanced identified mitigation actions. This includes communities that at a minimum advanced or began implementing identified mitigation actions, either from their Mitigation Plan or from new strategies identified during the Risk MAP project. Given that the actual implementation of a project may take years to execute, FEMA will track indicators that actions are initiated, in progress, or completed.

Action Measure 1 is an internal measure that will be emphasized in Joint Program Reviews, whereas Action Measure 2 is an external measure that is reported to stakeholders.
