NIMS Integration Center Offers Preliminary List of Preparedness Grant Programs

Aug. 5, 2005
The NIMS Integration Center has posted a list of federal preparedness grant programs on its Web page. The information was provided by federal departments and agencies to the center and includes federal preparedness funding programs with state and local entities such as cooperative agreements and memorandums of understandings as well as grants and contracts.

The NIMS Integration Center is making this preliminary list available at www.fema.gov/nims to help state and local entities identify funding streams that may be affected in connection with NIMS implementation requirements. This should not be considered a definitive list of federal preparedness grants and agreements. Disaster assistance funds are not tied to NIMS compliance.

For more information about federal assistance programs for state, local and tribal governments, the Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance may be found at www.cfda.gov. For more information about DHS Office of Domestic Preparedness grants see www.ojp.usdoj.gov/odp.
