Mutual Aid Agreements are formal agreements between agencies and jurisdictions to provide and receive assistance during emergencies or disasters. These agreements are not mandated in state and county emergency management budgets, but they are a common practice in emergency management.

Mutual Aid Agreements are not limited to the exchange of resources between neighboring states, as they can be established between any agencies or jurisdictions. The assistance provided is not based on the equivalent monetary value of shared resources, but on the needs of the requesting agency or jurisdiction when existing resources are inadequate.

Hence the correct answer is option  D. assist agencies and jurisdictions when existing resources are inadequate.
