FEMA Announces Notice of Funding Opportunity on Program to Prepare Communities for Complex Coordinated Terrorist Attacks

WASHINGTON — Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) announced today a Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) for the Fiscal Year (FY) 2016 Program to Prepare Communities for Complex Coordinated Terrorist Attacks (CCTA Program).

 

The FY 2016 CCTA Program provides $35.94 million to local, state, tribal, and territorial jurisdictions for improving their ability to prepare for, prevent, and respond to complex coordinated terrorist attacks in collaboration with the whole community.

 

The FY 2016 CCTA Program intends to enhance resilience and build capacity for jurisdictions to address complex coordinated terrorist attacks that may occur across the nation.  Following a competitive process, selected local, state, tribal, and territorial jurisdictions will receive funding specifically to build and sustain capabilities to enhance their preparedness for complex coordinated terrorist attacks, to include the following components: identifying capability gaps, developing and/or updating plans, training to implement plans and procedures, and conducting exercises to validate capabilities.

 

Awards will be made on a competitive basis to applicants who present an ability to successfully meet the requirements described in the NOFO.  FEMA encourages interested jurisdictions of various types, sizes, and capabilities to apply.

 

The application period will remain open until February 10, 2017.  The FY 2016 CCTA Program Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) is located online at: http://www.fema.gov/grants as well as on http://www.grants.gov Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) number 97.133.
