Learn about the Citizen Corps Program (CCP) Grant

Pending the availability of funds, MEMA - through an annual, competitive sub-grant application process - makes CCP funding available to local CERT and VIPS programs

This is a reimbursement-based grant program with a goal to assist local Community Emergency Response Teams (CERT) and Volunteers in Police Service (VIPS) programs in preparing for all-hazards in support of local first responder efforts. CCP funds may be used towards planning activities; equipment; training; and exercises. Additional information about the grant program and application process may be found in MEMA's Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO), which is provided below.
