The purpose Emergency Management Performance Grants is to assist state and local governments in enhancing and sustaining all-hazards emergency management capabilities. The Federal Emergency Management Agency provides the funding to local jurisdictions through the states. This supplemental fund was allocated to states in addition to their regular FY2020 awards to augment the planning and response efforts around COVID-19. All work under the EMPG-S award must be in direct support of community resilience in the current COVID-19 climate.
Vermont Emergency Management distributes funds to the 11 Regional Planning Commissions (RPCs) across the state. Click here for a list of RPCs and links to their web sites.
