U.S. water systems need to consider actions to mitigate risks and enhance resilience in the face of natural hazards to comply with America's Water Infrastructure Act (AWIA) of 2018. This study describes federal policies, programs, and financial resources that support the water sector in implementing mitigation and resilience strategies, and includes a detailed review of water sector participation in Hazard Mitigation Assistance (HMA) programs. An opportunity exists to use the AWIA assessments to justify investment under various funding and financing programs to achieve policy goals.
