The Natural Hazard Mitigation Saves: 2019 Report represents the most exhaustive benefit-cost analysis of natural hazard mitigation, from adopting up-to-date building codes and exceeding codes to addressing the retrofit of existing buildings and utility and transportation infrastructure. It was funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Earlier editions of the report were funded by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), U.S. Economic Development Administration (EDA), International Code Council (ICC), Insurance Institute for Business and Home Safety (IBHS), American Institute of Architects (AIA), and National Fire Protection Association (NFPA).
