About Us

SmarterSafer.org is a national coalition made up of a diverse chorus of voices united in favor of environmentally responsible, fiscally sound approaches to natural catastrophe policy that promote public safety. The coalition believes that the Federal government has a role in encouraging and helping communities and homeowners undertake mitigation efforts to safeguard against natural disasters. At the same time, the coalition opposes measures that put people’s lives at risk at the expense of taxpayers. The coalition is working to ensure that Congress does not incentivize people to live in harm’s way in places prone to natural disasters and advocates for policies that better protect people in harm’s way, the environment and taxpayers.
