FEMA announces grant program to help communities prepare for complex, coordinated terrorist attacks

from IAEM

The 2016 Department of Homeland Security Appropriations Act provided $39 million for an initiative to help states, local governments, and tribal governments to prepare for, prevent, and respond to complex, coordinated terrorist attacks with the potential for mass casualties and infrastructure damage. Eligible activities for the initiative include planning, training and exercises to support plans and other activities deemed appropriate. In the coming weeks, DHS/FEMA will be announcing details about the grant opportunity and the opening of the application period for the Fiscal Year 2016 Program to Prepare Communities for Complex Coordinated Terrorist Attacks Grant. In the interim, to facilitate the application process – parts of which could take up to four weeks to complete – FEMA is providing information on the steps you can take now: get a Data Universal Number System (DUNS) number; register in the System for Awards Management (SAM); register with Grants.gov as an organization applicant; and register for the FEMA Non-Disaster Grants System. Final application submission and award management will be made in ND Grants. Questions should be directed to FEMA’s Intergovernmental Affairs Division at (202) 646-3444 or FEMA-IGA@fema.dhs.gov. more
