Taylor County Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan 2021 Update Public Survey
Taylor County in collaboration with 9 participating jurisdictions is updating their MultiJurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan (MJHMP) pursuant to the five year update cycle requirements of the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 and to obtain approval from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
