FEMA issues clarification on 45-day timeline for passing through SHSP and UASI funding to local or tribal governments

from IAEM

On Sept. 1, Brian Kamoie, FEMA assistant administrator for grant programs, issued a message to clarify the timeline for State Administrative Agencies (SAAs) to obligate, or "pass through," at least 80 percent of State Homeland Security Program (SHSP) and Urban Area Security Initiative (UASI) funding to local or tribal governments within 45 calendar days after the SAA receives its Homeland Security Grant Program (HSGP) award from FEMA. Grant recipients have cited confusion regarding when the 45-calendar-day requirement begins. In order to meet the statutorily required terms of the Fiscal Year (FY) 2015 HSGP Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO), SAAs must pass through at least 80 percent of SHSP and UASI funding, respectively, within 45 calendar days of receiving the grant funds. Notwithstanding any other provision of the FY 2015 HSGP NOFO, "receipt of funds" occurs either when the SAA accepts the award or 15 calendar days after the SAA receives notice of the award, whichever is earlier. more
