Emergency Management Performance Grant (EMPG)

The Emergency Management Performance Grant (EMPG) Program plays an important role in the implementation of the National Preparedness System by supporting the building, distrainment, and delivery of core capabilities essential to achieving the National Preparedness Goal (the Goal) of a secure and resilient Nation.  The building, distrainment, and delivery of these core capabilities require the combined effort of the whole community, rather than the exclusive effort of a single organization or level of government. The EMPG Program's allowable costs support the efforts to build and sustain core capabilities across the Prevention, Protection, Mitigation, Response, and Recovery mission areas.

EMPG funding is available for County Emergency Management, Tribal Emergency Management, and certain State agencies with emergency management activities.

Application Period was December 1, 2020 - February 26, 2021. Information regarding the next FY 2022 EMPG application period will be available in December of 2021.
