Dept. of Homeland Security - Emergency Management Baseline Assessment Grant. Due: 7/7/22.
Emergency Management Baseline Assessment Grant (EMBAG)
The purpose of the FY 2022 EMBAG cooperative agreement is to develop, maintain and update, and test national-level standards for emergency management that can help ensure that jurisdictions (state, tribal, territorial, and local communities) have accredited emergency management programs and certified emergency managers in place in advance of an incident. To achieve this purpose, the EMBAG supports voluntary national-level standards and peer review assessment processes that jurisdictions can use to identify the capacity and shortfalls of their emergency management programs and emergency managers and develop a path to compliance with these standards. These national-level standards fall under "other assistance" called out under Section 503 (b)(2)(G) of the Homeland Security Act of 2002 to "build tribal, local, State, regional, and national capabilities... necessary to respond to a natural disaster, act of terrorism, or other man-made disaster." See 6 U.S.C. section 313(b)(2)(G). The EMBAG specifically supports: 1. The development, maintenance, update, revision, and enhancement of voluntary national-level standards and peer review assessment processes for emergency preparedness and response that are driven, established, validated, and revised through consensus;2. Related efforts to develop or update national-level accreditation for these standards; and 3. The assessment of select state, local, tribal, and territorial emergency management programs and emergency managers against these national-level standards.
