Hazard Mitigation Planning
The Colville Tribes have received a FEMA grant to prepare a Hazard Mitigation Plan for the Reservation. This planning effort has three goals:
- Identify natural and technology-based hazards/threats to the health and safety, cultural heritage, and property of members and residents;
- Identify ways to minimize those risks; and
- Make the Confederated Tribes eligible for pre-disaster mitigation grants, which are only available once a Hazard Mitigation Plan (HMP) has been completed and accepted by FEMA.
The planning effort will kick off with a meeting at the Lucy Covington Government Center on Wednesday, November 9th, beginning at 1 p.m. in the events center. All are welcome to participate in the initial scoping meeting. For those who cannot come to this kick-off meeting, individual sessions will be scheduled within each district during November to make sure that everyone has a chance to be heard.
A survey form will be available at the meetings to help the planning effort. It can be handed in at any of the meetings or sessions, or can be faxed or e-mailed to the coordinator.
The draft HMP is expected to be ready for public comment by April 2017. After comments are received and revisions made, the plan will be forwarded to FEMA by August 2017.
For further information, please contact the coordinator for this project, Randy August, at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (509)634-2134.

The Omak School District in conjunction with the Colville Confederated Tribes, honors the
Proclamation established by Former Chairman of the Colville Business Council, Joseph A.
Pakootas; whereunto September 26th or the last Friday of September, also know as American
Indian Day, shall be recognized. This is a time set aside to reflect upon all that the Native
American people and their rich culture and heritage have given to us and all that they have
done to shape not only America, which was their home for thousands of years but
Washington State and our local area as we now know it. They are a very proud people with
cherished customs, beliefs, and traditions so please help us honor them.
Thank you all for honoring the proclamation and supporting the students
