The Board of County Commissioners of Delta County, Colorado, through the Delta County Office of Emergency Management, is soliciting competitive sealed bid proposals from qualified consultants to submit proposals to update the Delta County Multi-Jurisdictional Local Hazard Mitigation Plan (FEMA approved in January 2019 and expires in January 2024), that meets the requirements of the Disaster Mitigation Act (DMA) of 2000, 44 CFR Part 201.6 and the most current Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and Colorado Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management (DHSEM) Local Mitigation Plan review tool requirements.
Additionally, the plan must be aligned with the current State of Colorado Local Hazard Mitigation Plan and include enhanced data for wildfire risk that will allow Delta County to submit data from the plan in whole or in part to the Colorado State Forest Service Supervisory Forester as an update to the Delta County Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP).
Delta County wishes to remain proactive in steps to prepare for natural or human-caused hazards. This plan will allow Delta County and the participating jurisdictions; to maintain eligibility for future federal mitigation grant funding and help identify mitigation actions that will make local communities more disaster resilient. To meet these needs, Delta County has applied for and received funds from FEMA through the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) for developing an update to the local Hazard Mitigation Plan (HMP).
