BOLDplanning has been a leader in the Hazard Mitigation Planning (HMP) industry since the enactment of the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 (DMA2000). The team possesses years of “rubber meets the road” experience having led hundreds of jurisdictions through the plan development and FEMA review process. Using lessons learned and client feedback, we have established a tested and proven mitigation planning program that works equally well for local, tribal, and state governments as well as school districts and universities.

BOLDplanning manages the hazard mitigation planning process by providing on-site process facilitation, stakeholder outreach, data collection and analysis, plan writing, and strategy development.

The BOLDplanning approach couples stakeholder participation and input with the use of cutting edge GIS technology. Our use of advanced GIS modeling allows for the most accurate, efficient, and functional risk assessments for your community. BOLDplanning uses the most accurate and up to date data from state agencies, FEMA, NOAA, NRCS, NWS, SILVIS Labs, US Census, USACE, and the USGS. Our models provide not only a blueprint for future mitigation activities and projects, but also a tool to help your community plan mitigation friendly growth and sustainable development.

Grant Writing Services

In addition to providing mitigation planning services, the BOLDplanning Mitigation Department provides the same level of excellent service for both planning and project grant applications under  the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) and the Pre-Disaster Mitigation Program (PDM), for both planning and project grant applications.

To date, BOLDplanning has written HMGP and PDM grant applications which have been awarded $5.6 Million in funding.
