Natural Hazard Mitigation Saves Study
More than a decade after releasing its original report on mitigation, the National Institute of Building Sciences began a multi-year study on natural hazard mitigation. The Institute will release a series of reports as it completes its finding.

In January 2018, the Institute issued Natural Hazard Mitigation Saves: 2017 Interim Report. The 2017 Interim Report highlights the benefits of two mitigation strategies. The Institute's project team looked at the results of 23 years of federally funded mitigation grants provided by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), U.S. Economic Development Administration (EDA) and U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and found mitigation funding can save the nation $6 in future disaster costs, for every $1 spent on hazard mitigation.

In October 2018, the Institute issued Natural Hazard Mitigation Saves: Utilities and Transportation Infrastructure, which examines the potential benefits associated with investing in mitigation for select utility and transportation infrastructure. The project team reviewed 859 EDA grants, finding only 16 related to natural-hazard mitigation of utilities and transportation lifelines. Of these, the team acquired sufficient data to estimate benefit cost ratios (BCRs) for 12 mitigation investments.
