The Emergency Management Performance Grant (EMPG) program supports building and maintaining an all-hazards emergency preparedness system. This includes providing the necessary support to sustain and enhance state and local emergency management capabilities for preparedness, mitigation, response and recovery.

EMPG funding is available to all communities in the Commonwealth through their local emergency management departments. Projects funded by EMPG should further the National Preparedness Goal. Cities and towns that meet the sub-applicant and project eligibility requirements are awarded a non-competitive formula grant.

The Commonwealth’s award is subject to the federal budget process. Federal funding for this grant program is made available annually and the program per federal guidelines, requires a dollar-for-dollar local match.  

Application Period: OPEN - Deadline: August 18, 2017
