Mitigation Framework: General

Mitigation loans--not grants

Mitigation grants can be an venue for getting federal money--not necessarily addressing the most needed or cost-effective mitigation. Mitigation loans should be provided instead--roughly modelled on the community disaster loan program. The amount of loans that a community would be capped based on their analysis of their ability to repay--how resilient their tax base is.
