Overview

The events surrounding Hurricanes Katrina and Rita highlighted the critical importance of effective catastrophic all-hazards planning. As part of this effort, State and local jurisdictions must engage in comprehensive national and regional planning processes that seek to enhance emergency management and catastrophic capabilities through strengthened national and regional relationships and the allocation of resources toward all-hazards planning, including maintaining current hazard mitigation plans.

An all-hazards approach to emergency response, including the development of a comprehensive program of planning, training, and exercises, provides the foundation for an effective and consistent response to any threatened or actual disaster or emergency, regardless of the cause. As appropriated by the Consolidated Security, Disaster Assistance, and Continuing Appropriations Act, 2009 (Public Law 110-329), the FY 2009 Emergency Management Performance Grant (EMPG) Program provides $306,022,500 to assist State and local governments to enhance and sustain all-hazards emergency management capabilities.

Total Funding Awarded in FY 2009: $306,022,500

Purpose: The EMPG program provides resources to assist State and local governments to sustain and enhance all-hazards emergency management capabilities. States have the opportunity to use EMPG funds to further strengthen their ability to support emergency management activities while simultaneously addressing issues of national concern as identified in the National Priorities of the National Preparedness Guidelines. EMPG has a 50 percent Federal and 50 percent State cost-share cash or in-kind match requirement.

At least 25 percent of FY 2009 EMPG funds must be allocated to the Strengthen Planning priority through planning, training and exercise activities.

Eligibility: To be eligible to receive FY 2009 EMPG funding, applicants must meet NIMS compliance requirements. The NIMSCAST will be the required means to report FY 2008 NIMS compliance for FY 2009 preparedness award eligibility. All State and territory grantees were required to submit their compliance assessment via the NIMSCAST by September 30, 2008 in order to be eligible for FY 2009 preparedness programs. The State or territory department/agency grantee reserves the right to determine compliance reporting requirements of their sub-awardees (locals) in order to disperse funds at the local level.

For FY 2009 there are no new NIMS compliance objectives. If FY 2008 NIMS compliance was reported using NIMSCAST and the grantee has met all NIMS compliance requirements, then NIMSCAST will only require an update in FY 2009.

"With the EMPG and other state activities we incorporated all aspects of Emergency Management to some degree, which helped North Carolina Emergency Management achieve EMAP accreditation in October 2008."
