will be used by localities to apply for initial StormReady or 
TsunamiReady and StormReady recognition and renewal of that recognition 
every six years. The government will use the information collected to

the resources necessary to fulfill all the eligibility requirements to 
achieve the full StormReady, StormReady/TsunamiReady or StormReady/
