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, sustainment, and delivery of core capabilities essential to achieving the National Preparedness Goal of a secure and resilient Nation.  The building, sustainment, 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.

EMPG awards are provided to local tribal and county jurisdictions on an annual basis in the spring for the fiscal year starting July 1st.  The FY2023 EMPG Performance Period began on July 1, 2023.

The FY 2024 EMPG Guidance Document is being released prior to the Federal Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO).  Upon release of the FY 2024 NOFO any changes or additional information will be updated. Other EMPG related resources will be posted as they become available.


FY 2024 EMPG application period is January 3, 2024 - April 5, 2024. Applicants have until 11:59pm on Friday, April 5th to hit submit. Late submittals will not be accepted. Applications must be submitted through the AmpliFund system.
