In fiscal year (FY) 2020, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) will competitively award $10 million to eligible states and local governments to close known preparedness capability gaps, encourage innovative regional solutions to issues related to catastrophic incidents and build on existing regional preparedness efforts, including pandemic preparedness.

The FY 2020 Regional Catastrophic Preparedness Grant Program (RCPGP), as appropriated by the Department of Homeland Security Appropriations Act, 2020 provides funding to close known capability gaps, encourages innovative regional solutions to issues related to catastrophic incidents and builds on existing regional preparedness efforts. The purpose of the RCPGP is to build regional capacity to manage catastrophic incidents by improving and expanding collaboration for catastrophic incident preparedness. FEMA added regional pandemic preparedness as a program objective this year.

In FY 2020, RCPGP will competitively award $10 million to assist states and local governments to develop innovative regional solutions to issues related to catastrophic incidents. A state or territory is eligible to apply if one or more of the 100 most popular metropolitan statistical areas (MTAs) is located within the state or territory.

Applications are due July 15. More information is here.
