            What is Mitigation?
Mitigation is the effort to reduce loss of life and property
  by lessening the impact of disasters. Mitigation efforts
         provide value to the American people by:

• creating safer communities by reducing loss of life and
  property,
• enabling individuals to recover more rapidly from flood
  and other disasters, and
• lessening the financial impact on the Treasury, States,
  Tribes, and communities.
