FY14 EMPG Grant Award
Natalie Eckstrom, Grants Department
Ratify the execution of a Notice of Subrecipient Grant Award from the Texas Division of Emergency Management for the FY 2014 Emergency Management Performance Grant program.
The Emergency Management Performance Grant (EMPG) program provides federal funding to assist states and local governments in developing and carrying out emergency management programs. States submit annual applications that include a statement of work and proposed budget to DHS and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for funding to match State and local appropriations for emergency management programs. States receive EMPG funding from DHS and, in turn, pass through EMPG funding to local governments to reimburse them for emergency management program expenses. States, including Texas, require local governments which wish to participate in the program to submit EMPG program applications that include a Statement of Work and a program budget.
On January 8, 2014, the Commissioners Court authorized the submission of a grant application for the FY14 EMPG program.
The funding of EMPG funds will help assist Nueces County to carry out preparedness activities to enhance their capability to mitigate potential hazards and respond to and recover from emergencies and disasters by using funding for key elements of emergency preparedness comprehensively emergency planning, emergency training, and exercises.
The grant award is $37,646.40. The County will need to cost share 50-50%, which will come entirely from the Emergency Management operational budget.
