    FEMA announces release of $100 million in supplemental Emergency Management Performance Grants (EMPG) to assist in the local response to COVID-19

    On April 14, the U.S. Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) announced the Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) and final allocations for the FY 2020 Emergency Management Performance Grant (EMPG-S) Program-Supplemental Funding. All 56 states and territories can now apply for the $100 million in supplemental funding made available to EMPG under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. Once a state or territory has been awarded its grant, they can then make subawards to local and tribal governments, such as counties.

    EMPG-S program assists states, local governments, tribes and territories with their public health and emergency management activities that support the prevention of, preparation for and response to the ongoing COVID-19 public health emergency. FEMA announced that it will award funding to support planning and operational readiness, development of tools and strategies for prevention, preparedness and response to COVID-19, and to ensure ongoing communication and coordination among federal, state, local, tribal and territorial partners throughout the response.

    Funding awarded under the EMPG-S program is separate and distinct from any funding that will be awarded under the FY 2020 EMPG Program NOFO published on Feb. 14, 2020.
