The NWTEMC is currently assisting the Lower Elwha Klallam Tribe to develop a Tribal Hazard Mitigation Plan. Once completed and approved by FEMA, this plan will serve as a guide for future decision making in the Tribe's Goal to make the tribal people and it properties safer from the effects of natural hazards.

The Plan will be reviewed once a year and after any major disaster events. The Plan will also be incorporated into other planning and development projects.

The Plan will be updated once every five years.

This page contains all the resources and materials gathered for the development of the Plan, including early drafts, presentations and surveys.
