Grants to California Tribes for programs related to disaster readiness. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to finalize. Funding is intended to help federally recognized tribes prepare for all types of crises and emergencies. Grants are available to support a range of activities and projects that effectively contribute to the tribe’s ability to prevent, prepare for, mitigate against, respond to, and recover from emergencies and disasters, whether natural or man-made.

In developing projects for the FY 2021 EMPG Program, Applicants should address areas for improvement as they relate to emergency management capabilities, including:

  • Logistics – Distribution Management Planning;
  • Evacuation Plan/Annex;
  • Disaster Financial Management;
  • Catastrophic Disaster Housing; and
  • Resilient Communications

In addition, Applicants should consider funding projects that fall into the state, regional, and national priority areas:

  • Mass Care
  • Housing
  • Economic Recovery

FEMA has identified the allowable categories of cost under the EMPG as Planning, Organization, Equipment, Training, and Exercise.
