As communities prepare for storms and natural disasters, Hazard Mitigation Plans are critical to reduce local environmental and public health impacts when severe events occur. Many Feds, states and local governments are currently updating plans to identify risks and vulnerabilities associated with natural disasters, and this presents an opportunity to incorporate green infrastructure. This webinar will provide an overview of the Federal Hazard Mitigation requirements; explain opportunities, benefits and incentives for incorporating green infrastructure into hazard mitigation plans; and showcase nature-based solutions. Communities that can align local Hazard Mitigation Plans and resources to fund efforts like green infrastructure can reduce the impacts of flooding, protect and improve water quality, and reduce the impacts of stormwater while increasing resiliency to severe storm events.

Cabinet secretaries and federal agency leaders have signed a Memorandum of Understanding committing to follow President Trump's One Federal Decision framework for processing environmental reviews and permits for major infrastructure projects. President Trump established the policy of One Federal Decision for the federal government's processing of environmental reviews and permits for major infrastructure projects in EO 13807. Under One Federal Decision, EO 13807 requires that each major infrastructure project have a lead federal agency that is responsible for navigating the project through the process, all federal agencies to sign one "Record of Decision" (for purposes of complying with NEPA), and relevant federal agencies to issue the necessary permits for the project within 90 days of the signing of the Record of Decision. EO 13807 established a 2-year goal for the completion of the environmental review and permitting processes for the signature of the Record of Decision and issuance of the necessary permits.
This memorandum, dated 20 March 2018, contains guidance2 for agencies to carry out responsibilities under EO 13807, which requires Federal agencies to process environmental reviews and authorization decisions for "major infrastructure projects" as One Federal Decision(OFD).
