Has your home, business, or community been impacted or damaged by a natural hazard?  

The Central Virginia Planning District Commission (CVPDC) is working with area communities to develop a pre-disaster plan, or Hazard Mitigation Plan, to establish strategies ahead of natural disasters to lessen the overall impact and vulnerability to individuals, families, businesses and property in our region.
