National Hazard Mitigation Association

The National Hazard Mitigation Association (NHMA) promotes natural hazard risk reduction through planning, adaptation and mitigation with emphasis on a whole of community approach.

About Us

NHMA membership represents a diverse group of practitioners, academics, government officials, and students spanning across the United States.


NHMA brings experience, expertise and education to communities through workshops and webinars to assist organizations or regions with mitigation planning, training, outreach and implementation. Information on past and upcoming NHMA workshops can be found on our webinars page, while our resources page provides access to a variety of disaster and emergency management journals, professional societies and more.


The mission of NHMA is to elevate the value of of hazard mitigation to catalyze societal change so that natural hazards do not cause disasters bringing suffering to people, taxpayers, property and the environment. We promote education, policies and activities that mitigate current and future losses, costs and pain unnecessarily caused by unwise development practices without regard to natural hazards. To continue doing this we greatly appreciate your donations and support.
