The FEMA National Exercise Division is now accepting Spring 2021 exercise assistance nominations to the National Exercise Program. Spring nomination submissions are due by Apr. 1, 2021, and decisions will be announced by May 3. The program offers no-cost assistance to jurisdictions for exercise design, development, execution and evaluation to validate capabilities across all mission areas. Instructions for how to submit a nomination are on the National Exercise Program website. FEMA is hosting three 60-minute webinars for state, local, tribal, territorial and other whole community partners to discuss the nomination process. The webinar also will cover National Exercise Program supporting activities for conducting exercises in a pandemic, as well as Principals’ Strategic Priorities. The dates for the webinars are: 2:00 p.m. EST Feb. 11 (today); 4:00 p.m. EST Feb. 25; and 2:00 p.m. EST Mar. 11. To register for the webinars, visit the National Exercise Program webinar page.
