How to apply...
Grant application guidance is provided to the point of contact designated by the State governor. FEMA regional personnel will work directly with the States providing technical assistance, as required, as States develop their applications. Local governments apply to their States using procedures established by the States.
Note: Each program will indicate whether applications are to be submitted to the Federal headquarters, regional or local office, or to a State or local government office.
FEMA Regional Offices notify States when awards are approved. States notify local subgrantees of the amounts of their awards.
Note: Grant payments may be made by a letter of credit, advance by Treasury check, or reimbursement by Treasury check.
Awards may be made by the headquarters office directly to the applicant, an agency field office, a regional office,
or by an authorized county office. The assistance may pass through the initial applicant for further distribution by
intermediate level applicants to groups or individuals in the private sector.
