While it is impossible the eliminate all risks, CDBG-MIT funds will enable grantees to mitigate against disaster risks, which at the same time allowing grantees the opportunity to transform state and local planning. — U.S. Housing and Urban Development, Federal Register Notice, August 30, 2019, page 45838.
