Establish and strengthen intergovernmental partnerships at the local, Tribal, State, and Federal levels as a catalyst in developing comprehensive and sustainable solutions to state flood hazard challenges.


Through an intergovernmental team of local, Tribal, State, and Federal agencies and organizations, a collaborative process will:

  • Facilitate strategic, integrated life-cycle mitigation actions to reduce the threat, vulnerability, and consequences of flooding in the State of Arizona;
  • Create or supplement a mechanism to collaboratively solve issues and implement or recommend solutions;
  • Foster leveraging of available resources and information between agencies;
  • Increase and improve flood risk communication and outreach;
  • Promote wise stewardship of the taxpayers’ investments;
  • Develop a more comprehensive regional flood risk management strategy through participation in the Regional Interagency Flood Risk Management Team; and
  • Integrate mitigation into recovery action.

Team Activities

Town of Quartzsite, Arizona – Flood Response Plan

A Flood Response Plan (FRP) will be developed, along with a tabletop exercise to test the plan.  The purpose of the FRP is to establish resources to be used during a flood event and raise awareness with partners on providing a coordinated response.
