The Counties of Accomack and Northampton worked together with the Accomack-Northampton Planning District Commission to develop a Regional Hazard Mitigation Plan, with FEMA funding, as part of a mitigation planning requirement of the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 (DMA 2000). The DMA 2000 charged localities with the responsibility of identifying, assessing, and mitigating the risks within their communities to ensure that critical services would continue to function if a natural disaster were to occur.

The Hazard Mitigation Plan was approved by the Virginia Department of Emergency Management (VDEM) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency, and adopted by both Counties. It is important to note that once the plan was approved, the county became eligible for future mitigation function, if available, to implement pre- and post-disaster projects.
