Details

Purpose:

The purpose of the EMPG for Federally-Recognized Tribes in California (FY 2021 Tribal EMPG) is to assist federally-recognized tribes in preparing for all hazards. Funds provided under this Program must be used to support activities that effectively contribute to the tribe’s capability to prevent, prepare for, mitigate against, respond to, and recover from emergencies and disasters, whether natural or man-made.

Description:

Each year, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS)/Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) announces a Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) for the EMPG Program. The intent of the Program is to support state, local, and tribal efforts to protect against, mitigate the effects of, respond to, and recover from natural or human-caused disasters and other catastrophic events. The funds provided by this Program help to prepare the nation for the threats and hazards that pose the greatest risk to lives, property, and the environment in the United States.

EMPG provides funding to implement projects that enhance all-hazards preparedness and serve to build, sustain, and deliver 32 core capabilities across the five Mission Areas of the National Preparedness Goal (NPG). These Mission Areas, which are essential to the security and resilience of the nation, are Prevention, Protection, Mitigation, Response, and Recovery. The building, sustainment, and delivery of these core capabilities require the combined effort of the whole community, including public, private, and tribal entities.
