$34 Million Available in Emergency Operations Center Grants

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security is accepting applications until Feb. 27 for about $34 million in FY 2009 Emergency Operations Centers grants that help state, local, and tribal emergency managers and personnel. EOCs may request up to $1 million for construction projects or up to $250,000 for renovation projects through the FY 2009 grant program, which requires a federal match of 75 percent and a 25 percent grantee cost-share cash or in-kind match.

The governor of each state and territory has designated a State Administrative Agency to apply for and administer funds under the program. That agency, in coordination with the state emergency management agency, reviews EOC project applications and prioritize projects to ensure applications are consistent with statewide efforts and priorities. A national review panel including national and regional FEMA staffers and experts will determine who gets about $11 million of the month that will be awarded competitively.

EOC applications must be submitted via www.grants.gov. For more information on the EOC Grant Program and other DHS grant programs, visit the DHS and FEMA grants sites.
