6/13/2008

The Grant Programs Directorate (GPD) within the Federal Emergency Management Agency
(FEMA) is pleased to announce the availability of the FY 2008 EOC Grant Program Guidance
and Application Kit. 


Fully capable emergency operations facilities at the State, local, and tribal levels are an essential
element of a comprehensive national emergency management system and are necessary to ensure
continuity of operations and continuity of government in major disasters caused by any hazard.
Funds are provided as authorized by Section 614 of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and
Emergency Assistance Act (42 U.S.C 5196c), as amended by Implementing Recommendations
of the 9/11 Commission Act of 2007 (P.L. 110-53). $14,572,500 is available for grants for
construction or renovation of a State, local, or tribal government’s principal EOC. This grant
program is not intended to fund the construction or renovation of State, local, or tribal Fusion
Centers.


The State Administrative Agency (SAA) is the only eligible entity able to apply for the available
funding on behalf of qualified State, local, and tribal EOCs. Please note that the applications for
FY 2008 EOC grant funds will be submitted online, through the Grants Management System
(GMS) at https://grants.ojp.usdoj.gov. The completed FY 2008 EOC Grant Program
applications must be submitted via GMS no later than July 28, 2008. Accordingly, the deadline for

submission of your investment justification to OKOHS is WEDNESDAY, JULY 23, 2008 at 5PM Central time.
