FFY 2022 EMPG Subgrant
MEMA is releasing its annual EMGP subgrant. The primary objective of the FY 2022 EMPG Program is to provide funds to assist state, local, tribal and territorial emergency management agencies to implement the National Preparedness System (NPS) and to support the National Preparedness Goal (the Goal) of a secure and resilient nation. To that end, program objectives include: 1) closing capability gaps that are identified in the state or territory’s most recent Stakeholder Preparedness Review (SPR); and 2) building or sustaining those capabilities that are identified as high priority through the Threat and Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment (THIRA)/SPR process and other relevant information sources.
The EMPG program has a dollar-for-dollar cost-share requirement. The contribution can be cash (hard match) or in-kind (soft match). Communities and tribes shall agree to make available eligible match equal to or greater than the allocated award amount which can be found on pages 5-7 of the Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO). Match must be allowable, verifiable, and documented.
MEMA has allocated $2.5 million for pass-thru subgrants. Each Town, City and Federal-recognized tribes within Massachusetts, with an Emergency Management Department, are eligible to apply for and receive FFY2022 EMPG funds. MEMA will only accept one application per eligible entity. Applications must be completed by or in coordination with the respective Local/Tribal Emergency Management Director(s).
This application period is OPEN until November 30, 2022.
Completed application must be emailed to EM.Grants@mass.gov (please do not mail hard copies)
