National Drought Mitigation Center

Drought Planning Resources, by State

The map below categorizes state drought planning according to whether states have a plan, and if so, whether the plan emphasizes mitigation or response. It also shows states that are developing a long-term drought plan. See below to view a printable version of this map (updated 2013).

States play a key role in planning for drought in the United States, so we have organized information by state. Select a state from the map below to find all associated drought resources in our database for that state.

Each state page includes links to drought plans, websites, and drought planning agencies; contact information for key individuals; drought monitoring and impacts sites for the state; current drought status according to the U.S. Drought Monitor; number of people currently affected by drought; and links to recent drought news stories. State pages also include links to municipal and tribal drought plans within each state.
