FEMA released the funding notice for the fiscal year 2021 Regional Catastrophic Preparedness Grant Program. The application period will close at 5:00 p.m. EDT on July 16. The program provides $12 million to eligible states and local governments to close known preparedness capability gaps, encourage innovative regional solutions to issues related to catastrophic incidents and build on existing regional preparedness efforts, including pandemic preparedness. The purpose of the Regional Catastrophic Preparedness Grant Program is to improve and expand collaboration to build regional capacity to manage catastrophic incidents. Applicants are encouraged to consider the needs of underserved and socially vulnerable populations and to involve representatives from the affected communities in the proposed project to ensure their needs are sufficiently addressed. Awards will be made on a competitive basis to applicants who present an ability to successfully meet the requirements described in the funding notice.
